Afterwards, he paraded around Magnitogorsk with the Cup in a limousine as people stood to watch him pass while taking pictures and video. He visited and took pictures at the World War II memorial where the Cup was on display "at the town's main square, opposite the local economic mainstay - the metallurgical plant."
“Of course I have outlived the euphoria [of a Stanley Cup victory] by now. But, anyway, I think this feeling will stay with me for a long time. We have kept all our players, which is most important. The coaches are also staying and that’s a big plus. Everyone knows each other and the chances are high this year. It's hard not to think about big wins with a team like this, when you have a goalkeeper on the team like Fleury, and a captain like Crosby. So we expect victories. We’ll do our best to be in the [Stanley Cup] finals again,” - Evgeni Malkin
