The gang is back together!
TJ Oshie, Andre Burakovsky, and Dmitry Orlov were the last of the Stanley Cup winning squad to arrive in DC over the weekend.
On Monday the three joined their teammates on the ice for the informal skates being held at MedStar Capitals Iceplex.

Oshie, who led the “Back to Back” chant at the Stanley Cup Championship parade, spoke with NHL.com about the target on the Capitals’ back as the champs look to repeat, and denied any concerns about a Stanley Cup hangover.
“The hangover means we’ve still got a little bit of that great play left in our system,” Oshie said to Nicholas Cotsonika. “We can kind of keep the momentum from that. I’m not concerned really about our conditioning or really anything like that.”
“I don’t think we’re going to need to refocus as much as maybe people would assume,” Oshie continued. “And maybe we will. I could be wrong. But for me personally, I’m ready to roll.”
