Carolina Hurricanes winger Warren Foegele addressed his shove that injured TJ Oshie during the third period of Game 4 of their first round playoff series on Thursday night.
Foegele crosschecked Oshie from behind into the boards late in the game. The Washington Capitals star went down to the ice in pain, holding his arm. Foegele, who scored the first goal of the game in Carolina’s 2-1 win, only received a minor penalty for boarding.
He said after the game that the play was “unfortunate” and he wasn’t trying to hurt Oshie, according to the Washington Post’s Isabelle Khurshudyan.
That’s not going to cut it for the Caps. They were furious after the game, with Alex Ovechkin calling the play “dirty.”
Expect things to get physical when the team’s meet for Game 5 on Saturday. Also expect the league to examine the play for potential discipline.
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.
Caps coach Todd Reirden was furious after the game and said Oshie would be out for “quite some time.”
Alex Ovechkin called the hit “dirty.” He was upset that the penalty called was a 2-minute minor for boarding.
The Capitals are planning to provide more information on the extent and Oshie’s injury on Friday. The series is tied 2-2.
Alex Ovechkin was evaluated for a concussion after a brutal collision with teammate TJ Oshie on Wednesday night.
Ovechkin and Oshie ran into each other by the red line in the first period of Washington’s game at Toronto. While Oshie popped right back up after the collision, Ovechkin remained down and seemed to take the worst end of things.
Ovechkin was pulled off the ice by the concussion spotters and taken into the locker room for evaluation. He was later cleared for a return and came back to score a tie-breaking goal in the second period.
The goal helped Ovechkin tie Sergei Fedorov for the most points in NHL history by a Russian player.
Evgeni Malkin was ejected from Wednesday night’s Pittsburgh Penguins-Washington Capitals game for a controversial hit on TJ Oshie.
Malkin nailed Oshie with a chicken wing to the head in the third period.
Oshie left the ice and went into the locker room while play was ongoing for the second time in the evening. Malkin received a 5-minute major for his illegal check and game misconduct and was ejected. Patric Hornqvist served the penalty for Pittsburgh.
There were questions about whether the ejection was deserved. Some wondered whether Malkin was bracing for contact from Oshie.
Others felt right away that the play was dirty.
Oshie was able to return to the ice and even conducted a postgame interview following the Caps’ 2-1 win.
“Right away you’re nervous. I’d say about 20 minutes later everything settles down a little bit. Obviously had to get stitches, but the eye itself was feeling better,” Oshie told NBC Sports after the game.
Oshie had the tie-breaking goal in the third period for the Caps.
TJ Oshie had a great quote on Thursday night after his Washington Capitals won their first Stanley Cup.
Oshie spoke with reporters and noted that his dad, who has Alzheimer’s disease, doesn’t remember much, but he said that this would stick with him.
“He was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and he doesn’t remember a lot of stuff, but you bet your a– he’s going to remember this one,” Oshie said.
Oshie was also interviewed by NBC Sports’ Jeremy Roenick and gave a cleaner version of the quote.
Oshie finished the postseason with 21 points. His third season with the Caps turned out to be the best and has ended with a Stanley Cup.
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.
TJ Oshie sent a shoutout from Team USA shootout hero to another.
The US women’s hockey team won gold on Thursday at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang with a 3-2 shootout win over rival Canada. Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored in the sixth round of the shootout, which turned out to be the winning goal after Maddie Rooney stopped Canada to give the US the edge.
In 2014, Oshie helped the US beat Russia at the Winter Olympics in Sochi by scoring on four of six shootout attempts, including the clincher.
Upon learning of the US’ victory over Canada, Oshie sent the following tweet congratulating scorers Monique Lamoureaux and Gigi Marvin, as well as Jocelyne Lamoureux, who scored the golden goal in the shootout.
That’s some pretty awesome love shared by Team USA hockey heroes. Unfortunately only one of them received a medal, as the men’s team finished fourth in 2014.
TJ Oshie is getting married soon to his longtime girlfriend Lauren Cosgrove, and it looks like the woman just had herself one heck of a bachelorette party in Las Vegas.
Cosgrove, who has a daughter with Oshie, flew out to Sin City and partied it up with her friends in her last days as a single woman.
We’re guessing you’re going to enjoy these photos of the barbie doll (no, the photo at the top is not from the party, so don’t worry):
T.J. Oshie can list an Ice Hockey World Championships bronze medal, member of the 2014 U.S. Olympic team, and alternate captain for the St. Louis Blues on his resume. He can now also add his own breakfast food.
Oshie O’s, a honey nut toasted oat cereal, are now available at OshieCereal.com and come in a limited edition box. They may not help you become a first round pick in the NHL Draft or pull of a “Goal of the Year” as voted on by fans, but Oshie O’s can provide an alternative to traditional cereals, provided you get them before the limited time expires.
St. Louis Blues forward TJ Oshie is all of a sudden one of America’s most beloved athletes. He led Team USA to a win over Russia on Saturday by scoring four shootout goals. The 27-year-old is the talk of the Twitter world, but we have some bad news for all the ladies out there — Oshie is taken.
Oshie’s girlfriend is Lauren Cosgrove, and some would argue that she is the driving force behind the man whose Wikipedia briefly referred to him as an American hero. Wouldn’t you be motivated to win if you had this waiting at home for you?
This guy is a legend in the making.
