A Quick T.J. Oshie Injury Update

On Friday night at Capital One Arena, the Capitals suffered a 4-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.  In addition to the loss, Capitals forward T.J. Oshie did not finish the entire contest, as he left early due to a “lower-body injury.” Oshie did not play the last 9:55 of the third period.

On Saturday afternoon, the Washington Post’s Isabelle Khurshudyan gave an update on T.J.’s injury:

Certainly this is good news that Oshie is traveling with the Capitals to Pittsburgh and St. Louis.  It appears that Barry Trotz and his coaching staff are taking extra precaution with Oshie, but if he is healthy enough to go on the road trip, it is still possible that he could see action in both of the contests.

After the Capitals conclude their final back-to-back road trip in Pittsburgh and St. Louis on Sunday and Monday, the Capitals will return back home to face Nashville on Thursday and New Jersey on Saturday to close out the regular season.
