Sheary scored a goal on three shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Bruins in Game 5. Sheary buried a rebound just 11 seconds into the third period to get the Capitals on the board, but they couldn't tie the game. The goal was his only point in five postseason contests, and the winger added just five shots on goal, six hits and a minus-4 rating. The 28-year-old totaled 14 tallies and eight helpers in 53 regular-season games this year.
Sheary scored the game-winner in a 2-1 overtime win over the Flyers on Saturday. He drove the net with a defender on his back, took a pass and went backhand-forehand against Alex Lyon, slipping the puck between the goalie's pads. The puck eventually trickled over the line. It was Sheary's 14th goal of the season (52 games), but just his second point in his last 10 games.
Sheary signed a two-year, $3 million contract extension with the Capitals on Wednesday. This is a well-deserved extension for Sheary, who has produced 11 goals and eight assists across 40 games with the Capitals. Per Tom Gulitti of NHL.com, coach Peter Laviolette said that Sheary can play up and down the lineup, making him even more valuable ahead of the playoffs. However, he'll likely stick to the bottom six down the stretch.
Sheary registered a goal and two assists with two shots in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Flyers. Sheary racked up a season-best three points, opening the scoring eight minutes into the game before dishing out helpers on power-play goals by Tom Wilson and Alex Ovechkin. The 28-year-old Sheary has put up three goals and two assists in his last two outings while upping his season shooting percentage to a career-high 20.0 percent.
