The Washington Capitals defeated the New York Rangers in a game that people tuned into for one reason, but I hope they stuck around for another.
TJ Oshie, in his first game back from bereavement, scored in the first and second periods. Nic Dowd deflected John Carlson’s shot to make it 3-0 before the third period, where Alexis Larenfriere cracked the shutout.
Then TJ Oshie, for his dad, completed the hat trick with an empty-net goal. Morgan Barron added one for the Rangers in the final minute and change.
