Capitals furious over ‘dirty’ play by Warren Foegele on TJ Oshie
The Washington Capitals are furious over a “dirty” play by Warren Foegele that injured TJ Oshie during Game 4 of the team’s first round playoff series with the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday.
Foegele, who scored Carolina’s first goal of the game in a 2-1 win, crosschecked Oshie into the boards late in the game. Oshie went to the ice after crashing into the boards and was holding his arm.

Alex Ovechkin called the hit “dirty.” He was upset that the penalty called was a 2-minute minor for boarding.
