TJ Oshie was pretty darn good Thursday against Montreal. He scored his first goal as a Capital in the first period, then he won the preseason game in the shootout– his signature event.
The videos of the goals are bananas. (See all the other game highlights.)
Here’s his goal. (What a pass by Jonas Siegenthaler by the way.)
And here’s the shootout winner.

Afterwards, Oshie, the first star of the game, wished his shootout goal had been unnecessary.
“I would have rather had the game over end quick and head to the locker room with a win,” Oshie said. “I’m comfortable taking shootout [attempts]. I like it.”
“We’ll save most of the excitement for the first game of the regular season.”
Sounds good to us.
