WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump is congratulating the Washington Capitals hockey team for winning the Stanley Cup.

Trump is giving the team a shout out on his Twitter feed, singling out player Alex Ovechkin as ''a true Superstar'' and saying that the city is ''popping.'' It's the first Stanley Cup championship for the Capitals, which beat the Vegas Golden Knights in five games.

With the score tied at 3–3 in the third period, Lars Eller made the game-winning goal to put the Capitals up ahead for good at 4–3. Trump tweeted: "'Congratulations to the Washington Capitals on their GREAT play and winning the Stanley Cup Championship. Alex Ovechkin, the team captain, was spectacular - a true Superstar! D.C. is popping, in many ways. What a time!'"

Team captain Ovechkin won the Conn Symthe trophy after scoring 27 points (15 goals, 12 assists) in 24 games during the 2018 playoffs.
