TJ Oshie Celebrates the “Dirty 30”


Following the Capitals convincing 4-0 shutout victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning Friday night, Oshie, along with several teammates, family and friends set out to celebrate TJ’s 30th birthday. 

The post-game celebrations commenced with a Russian starter-party in downtown DC. Alex Ovechkin, Dmitry Orlov, Evgeny Kuznetsov and wives helped TJ usher in the big 3-0, Russian style.

Sources have confirmed to NoVa Caps that the initial Russian starter-party was a diversion used to allow for the real party to be setup, and for the Capitals players and family to gather at the primary party location in advance of TJ.

The surprise party was held H Street Country Club in DC. The party included “Dirty 30” shirts for everyone, which were adorned with TJ’s mug. The primary party location included a photo booth for fun images such as the title graphic for this post.
