TJ Oshie says past heartbreak has made Capitals stronger

TJ Oshie

The Washington Capitals are just one win away from finally capturing their first Stanley Cup in franchise history, and T.J. Oshie says all the team’s shortcomings in past years have helped them reach this point.

Following Washington’s 6-2 win over the Las Vegas Golden Knights on Monday, Oshie said the “heartbreak” the Caps have experienced has been beneficial.

Oshie is in only his third season with Washington, but he was part of two teams that lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins in back-to-back seasons in the second round of the playoffs. The Caps got over the hump by finally beating Sidney Crosby and company this year, and they have rallied back to take a 3-1 lead over Las Vegas.

The Stanley Cup Finals are far from over, but it says a lot about the Capitals that they have responded so well after the horrible luck they had in Game 1. As Oshie said, having dealt with adversity in the past probably helped them in this situation.
