Capitals’ T.J. Oshie Records Seventh Goal of the Season; Alex Ovechkin Records 1,300th Career Point

After a scoreless first period against the New York Islanders Tuesday night, Washington Capitals forward T.J. Oshie would finally light the scoring lamp. The goal marked his seventh of the season. Captain Alex Ovechkin picked up an assist and recorded his 1,300th career point.

Oshie would give the Capitals a 1-0 lead 10:36 into the middle frame. Center Evgeny Kuznetsov and Ovechkin assisted.

It’s Oshie’s seventh goal of the season and fifth point in his last six games (2g, 3a). Kuznetsov picked up the primary assist on the goal, which is his fourth assist in his last five games.

Ovechkin’s secondary assist marked his 1,300th career point. He becomes the 35th player in NHL history and the second active player to reach the 1,300-point milestone.
