Heading into Sunday night’s contest against the Chicago Blackhawks, Capitals right wing T.J. Oshie was coming off a game in which he scored two goals to help the Caps to a 5-2 win over the New York Rangers, as well as taking the team lead when it came to Goals Scored. Continuing to keep his stick red-hot, the tenacious winger extended his team lead in the goal department, with a first period marker in the Windy City.

In the Capitals’ first power play opportunity of the opening period against the Blackhawks, Oshie took a feed from center Evgeny Kuznetsov and put the puck past Chicago goaltender Corey Crawford for his seventh goal of the young 2019-20 season.

Oshie’s tally on the man-advantage was his third in the last two contests and his second consecutive game with a goal on the man-advantage as the first goal of the game. The goal was his fourth with the Caps a man up. Kuznetsov’s assist now gives him a point in six of the seven games he has played this season.
