Well into his thirties now, TJ Oshie remains a productive and exciting player who will almost definitely remain with the Caps until the end of the 2025 season, right?!
TJ Oshie, who may or may not be the captain of the Seattle Kraken someday, threw on his Seattle Seahawks jersey to celebrate the start of the NFL season on Sunday. And someone else precious in his family did too.
Oshie’s son, five-month-old Campbell, rocked a very tiny Russell Wilson jersey and the two took a photo together.
The Washington Capitals were punted out of the playoffs by the New York Islanders in five games. While that was a bummer, there was one benefit to that early exit.
The players were reunited a little sooner with their families.
Lauren Oshie documented her husband TJ reuniting with his three children Lyla, Leni, and Campbell after being away for nearly a month. It’s the best.
The Washington Capitals know that the end is near so they went to dramatic lengths to change their luck heading into Game Four.
Down 3-0 in their first-round series, several Capitals players sported new looks, highlighted by first-line center Evgeny Kuznetsov who shaved his head bald and left a goatee.
The Washington Capitals’ playoff intro is out and it’s straight out of the Marvel playbook.
Presenting the team’s stars as superheroes, the Capitals use a booming, dramatic soundtrack, a lot of red, and highly-contrasted lighting effects to present the players as our hockey saviors.
I love it.
TJ Oshie scored both Capitals goals in Washington’s 4-2 Game One loss to the New York Islanders on Wednesday.
The forward also jumped in goal and made a high-danger save for Braden Holtby after the goaltender got deked out of the crease by Jean-Gabriel Pageau.
John Carlson, TJ Oshie, and head coach Todd Reirden were critical of Anders Lee’s blindside hit on Nicklas Backstrom after the Capitals’ 4-2 loss to the New York Islanders, Wednesday.
Carlson, who tried to fight Lee immediately after he delivered the bodycheck, said, “It looked real dirty to me.”
TJ Oshie came up clutch in the second period, scoring twice from close range to give the Washington Capitals an early 2-0 lead.
The goals were Oshie’s second and third of the 2020 playoffs. He also scored during the round-robin.
TJ Oshie has been away from his family for nearly two weeks now and Friday, it appears that separation finally hit the father of three.
“Miss these four more and more every day,” Oshie wrote sweetly on Instagram. “Can’t wait to for the next time I get to wake up next to @lauren.oshie, have chats about any and everything with Lyla, squeeze my little Len, and take naps with Campbell. Love you, guys!”
After a sleepy start to their first 2020 playoffs game, TJ Oshie tried to wake the Capitals up with a spirited fight with Yanni Gourde late in the second period.
Spoiler alert: it worked.
