When they’re in town together, the Caps Russians always celebrate their birthdays by going out for a big, fancy dinner. Friday night after the Caps 4-0 shutout victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning, birthday boy TJ Oshie became an honorary Russian.
Wearing matching grey-colored TJ Oshie 30th birthday shirts, Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov, and Dmitry Orlov took Osh Babe to the Russian restaurant Mari Vanna in Washington DC.
“Happy b day Oshe babe!its gr8 to have man like u in the team!wish u all the best!😘” wrote Ovechkin on Instagram.
“Congrats Osh babe 30 B day 👌👍,” wrote Kuznetsov.
Here’s a closer look at the shirt.
Ovechkin and Kuznetsov also shared videos in Instagram stories.
This is priceless.
1:35AM Update: There are more details coming in. According to an anonymous source, the dinner was a surprise party thrown by Lauren Oshie and the entire team was in attendance. There were also custom made Oshie masks.
Also, I’m going to need to zoom and enhance here.
