Best moments from Golden Knights' Stanley Cup championship parade
The Golden Knights celebrated their first Stanley Cup victory in true Vegas fashion, parading down the strip on a Saturday night amongst a huge crowd of fans.
The NHL's title celebrations typically take place during the day, but the evening start and iconic backdrop made this one truly unique and memorable.
Here are the most indelible moments from a Cup parade like no other:
Nic Hague was absolutely loving life while holding the hallowed trophy early in the festivities.
Adin Hill channeled his inner Ricky Bobby by questioning his hand placement.
Keegan Kolesar got up close and personal with the fans and made sure they were hydrated.
Team captain Mark Stone brought the Cup back down to street level before handing it off to the three original members of the "Misfit" line - Reilly Smith, Conn Smythe Trophy winner Jonathan Marchessault, and William Karlsson.
Not everyone in attendance was in a celebratory mood, but the rest of the nearby fans responded just like they would inside the arena when the opposing team takes a penalty.
Karlsson had a slight mishap once the team made its way to the stage.
Less than 20 minutes later, the Swedish forward gave this "speech."

The players may have a hard time remembering the celebration when they wake up Sunday, but it was an event befitting of America's biggest party town.
