After posting seven points in the first eight games, TJ Oshie’s season took a nosedive during the next three weeks of play. Coming into Sunday’s matinee against the New Jersey Devils, Oshie had gone nine games without scoring and had only posted three points during that time.
Oshie broke that goalless streak in a big way against Jersey. The Osh Babe scored two power-play goals and tallied the primary assist on the game-winner, Alex Ovechkin’s 712th career tally.
It marked Oshie’s first three-point game since the season opener against the Buffalo Sabres.
“When we have Osh Babe on our team, every time he’s hot, he’s hot,” Ovechkin said.
