Alex Ovechkin Takes NHL Stanley Cup Trophy On A Celebration Tour

Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin has taken the cup on quite a tour the last few days. He took it to a Vegas nightclub, to a baseball game, to a fountain in Washington - a fountain Ovechkin jumped into for a quick swim. And he filled the trophy with beer and did a keg stand. Or was it a cup stand? It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
