T.J. Oshie is hoping the Washington Capitals' rather unconventional championship tradition lives on in the wake of the Washington Nationals' World Series victory Wednesday night.

After the Capitals captured their first Stanley Cup in 2018, the players made headlines with their exuberant celebrations, which included splashing around in public city fountains in Washington, D.C.

  Nationals' ice-cold offense can't find big hit as World Series lead disappears The Nationals offense has suddenly gone silent. After scoring 17 runs in the first two games, they have only scored two runs in their last two losses.After scoring 17 runs in the first two games of the World Series, the Nationals have only been able to score a meager two runs in their last two losses to the Houston Astros in Games 3 and 4 at Nationals Park.

Oshie also quipped about taking responsibility for any fountains that went unused, adding he'd love to join the celebration.

"That's according to Yelp, so if I left anyone's fountain out, I apologize," the Capitals forward said, according to NHL.com's Tom Gulitti. "But I'm sure those guys are going to have a good time and if they happen to jump in a fountain, I hope I get the call."

D.C. sports teams have now captured three professional championships over the last 16 months, with the Nationals, Capitals, and the WNBA's Washington Mystics all taking home their respective leagues' ultimate hardware.
