I hope this RMNB story finds you and finds you well. I hope you’re enjoying the wedding you’re at on this dreary Saturday night instead of watching your beloved Capitals of Washington. I write you with good tidings. Your beloved TJ Oshie has scored two goals in the first period.
So, yeah dude, he’s at 28 now, and this game’s just getting started.
The first came less than four minutes into #rego. On the power play, Nick Backstrom served the puck to low man Marcus Johansson, who handed it off to Oshie in the slot. One-timer and in.
After that goal, Tampa keeper Andrei Vasilevskiy left the game for a moment to get some repairs on his skates. He returned just in time for Oshie to do it again.
This time, Alex Ovechkin (31 assists) was the setup man, entering the zone and setting Oshie up for the rush goal. Again: a one-timer.
Oshie’s stick is red hot with 28 goals and a shooting percentage well above 20 percent. The Caps will need him to stay hot a bit longer; Tampa just tied it up.
Farewell, my sweet Patrick. When you sleep tonight, please dream of the 30-goal bet that, sure, maybe we didn’t formally make, but what does formal mean anyway?
