The Washington Capitals have lost 7 of 8 playoff match-ups all-time against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Late Thursday evening, TJ Oshie cut through all of that bad history and juju. Oshie scored a hat trick, which included the decisive goal in overtime, giving the Caps a 1-0 series lead over the Pens.
Naturally, Caps fans lost their shit.
At the Gallery Place metro stop, hundreds upon hundreds of fans were caught chanting “Let’s Go Caps.”
