With several street closures surrounding Capital One Arena for the Stanley Cup Finals, it’s become a challenge for both fans and players alike to drive to the game. T.J. Oshie and Matt Niskanen decided their commute to work would be taking the metro. Some fans that arrived early for the pregame festivities were lucky enough to catch glimpses of their heroes. 

As they arrived at the Gallery Place-Chinatown station, they were escorted by security.

On Sunday, Oshie and Niskanen spoke about the experience while the Caps held an optional skate. Both were asked which stop they got on and what line. Oshie said he isn’t familiar with the stops while Niskanen didn’t reveal the location, only saying it was close to their house.

“I will say that it’s close to our house and we live in the state of Virginia,” Niskanen said drawing laughs from the media.

Niskanen did hint that they took either the orange or silver line.

“It was great. It was actually real easy for us to get down there,” Oshie said. “The fans seemed very excited but were also very respectful. They wished us luck along the way. The closer we got, more fans got on. It was cool to see.”

Oshie was asked if they were going to do the same thing for Game 4.

“I don’t know. We haven’t discussed it yet. We’ll see,” said Oshie.

    Not familiar with the stops? How would he know where to get the Meteo and where to get off then? That’s a lame answer from a nice guy. Why not just say? It’s a bit mean….
