ARLINGTON, Va. - Just hours after arriving back home in the D.C. area and landing at Dulles International Airport Friday evening, the Washington Capitals are continuing their championship celebration in Arlington.
Caps players went to Don Tito in the Clarendon neighborhood while fans gathered to watch and cheer on their favorite hockey stars arriving for a private gathering.
