Washington Capitals forward T.J. Oshie played a big part in the team’s 3-2 overtime victory against the Boston Bruins in Game 1 of their first round Stanley Cup Playoff series on Saturday night at Capital One Arena, and wasted no time in making his mark in Game 2, scoring his first goal of the 2021 postseason in the first period.With Bruins superstar David Pastrnak in the box for Holding, the Caps set up in their usual power play formation in the offensive zone. Defenseman John Carlson sent the puck to Alex Ovechkin, who buzzed a shot towards the net, which Oshie masterfully deflected past Boston goaltender Tuukka Rask for his first goal of the postseason.
