The NHL playoffs are arguably the biggest grind in all of sports. It takes 16 post-season victories and a full-team effort over the span of the two months to earn the right to hoist Lord Stanley’s Cup.
But not everybody on the team gets a day with the trophy.
Capitals’ star forward T.J. Oshie, however, made sure a pair of players who were not given a day with the Cup — Travis Boyd and Shane Gersich — still got to celebrate.

The pair of Capitals players only played a combined total of three games in the playoffs, but every member of a championship team plays an important role.
Also worth mentioning from the video is Oshie’s great choice of cereal; the American-born winger filled the chalice with Cap’n Crunch, proving the 10-year pro is not only a veteran in the NHL but also when it comes to breakfast foods.
