"All we need is a puck drop...."

If you are a fan of the Washington Capitals, these words have definitely been floating around your head for the last twelve months.

And if you are a fan of the Vegas Golden Knights, well... we're sort of sorry about all that. Sort of. 

"...and release the hounds..."

The call from play-by-play announcer John Walton, the voice of Capitals hockey on 106.7 The Fan, of the final seconds of Game 5 of the 2018 Stanley Cup Finals will never be forgotten.

And on the 365-day anniversary of the Capitals first Stanley Cup win, Walton stood in a booth at a bar and recreated his goosebumps inducing call from when the Caps became champions. And he didn't disappoint.


Earlier Friday Walton went to find the spot his son, Jack, stood celebrating the Capitals win on F Street outside Capital One Arena. 

Because sports really is the best when it is shared between parents and their kids.

And a bonus: Here's Walton delivering that glorious call from the booth in Las Vegas.
