Capitals forward TJ Oshie rode the Metro again for Game Four. But this time he ran into a special problem when he got out at the Gallery Place stop.
According to Twitter user @CDLori, Oshie was 35 cents short on his fare card. Metro staff had to let him through.
Oshie signed an eight-year, $46 million contract over the offseason.

“I owe you guys,” Oshie said to Metro staff as they let him through. “Thank you.”
What a moment.
