Twenty shots into a thrilling effort in Game Six, the Capitals are finally rewarded with a goal.
It’s TJ Oshie’s moment.
The Caps drew their first power play in nearly two games, a hook from Braydon Coburn on Devante Smith-Pelly. To the PP the Caps went, and it was electric. First, Carlson rang the post. (The goal horn briefly roared.)
Then, with pinpoint precision, Nicklas Backstrom centered the puck to Oshie, who one-timed it.
Check out how pumped TJ was.
Oshie has six goals this postseason. Backstrom has eleven assists. With the secondary assist, Evgeny Kuznetsov’s point streak is now nine games old. But most importantly, the Caps are up 1-0.
Update: Oshie scored an empty-net goal with 50 seconds remaining in the third period. Monday marked Oshie’s first multi-goal performance of the 2018 playoffs. The Caps won Game Six 3-0.
