Who knew T.J. Oshie could pass the way he’s shown on Monday night? In the Washington Capitals first Stanley Cup Finals game in 20 years, Oshie came up big on two Capitals goals during the first two periods of Game 1

With the Capitals having just tied the game at 1 with a goal by Brett Connolly, the Capitals answered again just 42 seconds later. Jakub Vrana chased a puck on the corner boards and tapped it over to Oshie. Oshie came around the net and found Nicklas Backstrom coming towards the net. Backstrom gave the Capitals the lead.

It was a great play by Oshie and great awareness by Backstrom. That play doesn’t work when one doesn’t pay attention to the other.

In the third period with the Capitals trailing 3-2, Oshie did it again as John Carlson quickly tapped the puck to him and Oshie fed it right back around Shea Theodore. Carlson finished with a backhanderto tie the game at 3.

3-3 is the score after two periods. Sit back, relax and enjoy the third.

  2. That first one was not an intended pass. Oshie was trying a wraparound and it slid off his stick and fortuitously found Backstrom.
