The NHL and it's Stanley Cup went through some of the most memorable celebrations we've seen in awhile. 

Capitals' stars Alexander Ovechkin and T.J. Oshie celebrated like nothing we've seen over the last decade or so, and everybody loved it.

Except the NHL. 

According to Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post, the team received a warning from the league and the Hockey Hall of Fame regarding certain celebrations including keg stands out of the Cup.

"We ask them politely not to do it," Philip Pritchard, the Hockey Hall of Fame's Keeper of the Cup, told Khurshudyan. "We're trying to preserve the history of the Stanley Cup. We don't want any unnecessary damage to it or a person, in case they drop the person or he presses too hard or something."

Apparently the Capitals went so hard, that the Hockey Hall of Fame and league are ready to re-evaluate how the offseason celebrations are handled. 

"We'll see what happens as we move forward with the Cup," Pritchard said. "At the end of September, the Cup is going in to get engraved and updated and cleaned and everything, so we'll see how it is because we have to take it apart then and everything. We'll know probably more then in early October, once it's back for the home opener. Our biggest thing is respect for it."

Do you think the Capitals went too far in their celebrations?
