Oshie scored a power-play goal on seven shots, added six hits and blocked two shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Panthers in Game 6. Oshie swatted the puck in with 1:03 left in regulation, though the Capitals would go on to lose in overtime. The 35-year-old was arguably their best player in the first-round series loss, potting six goals with one assist, 22 shots on net, 24 hits and a plus-2 rating in six appearances. That's encouraging production after he was limited to 25 points in 44 contests in an injury-riddled regular season.
Oshie scored a pair of goals, including one on the power play, on five shots in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Panthers in Game 5. Oshie netted the Capitals' first and third goals, but their offense dried up after the latter tally. The 35-year-old has been a bright spot for the Capitals' offense with five goals, including three on the power play, and one assist in five playoff contests. He's added 15 shots on net, 18 hits and a plus-1 rating while playing in a top-six role.
Oshie picked up a goal and an assist in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Panthers. Oshie opened the scoring with a power-play goal in the first period before assisting on Evgeny Kuznetsov's tally in the third. The 35-year-old winger has had a strong series with three goals and an assist through the first four games. Oshie now has 30 goals and 33 assists in 99 career playoff contests.
Oshie scored the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 4-2 Game 1 win over the Panthers. Oshie broke a 2-2 tie with 9:23 to play. The American winger's 29th career playoff goal stood up as the game-winner in the series-opener.
Oshie (lower body) is on the ice for warmups and is expected to return Saturday versus the Devils, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports. Oshie has missed four games with the injury, but it appears he'll be able to slot back in Saturday. He'll likely play in a middle-six role, and that should allow the Capitals to go back to a 12-forward lineup after playing with 11 forwards and seven defensemen Friday versus the Sabres.
