T.J. Oshie had a goal the other night against the New York Islanders, the second straight game he lit the lamp for “Country Roads” to play over the speakers at Capital One Arena. Oshie has scored in three of his last five games. Oshie has scored eight points in his last eight games with three goals and five assists. He’s on fire with a three-game point streak.
Oshie ranks third on the team with 21 goals and is on pace to reach the 30 goal mark for the second time since the 2016-17 season when he recorded 33 goals. Oshie also has 21 assists for 41 points.
Oshie’s goals the last two games have come from both sides of the face-off circle. The first was a power play strike on the right side against the Philadelphia Flyers that tied the game. That was the most exciting part in an otherwise crappy game that saw the Caps lose in blowout fashion 7-2.

In another game Monday night when fans expected to see Alex Ovechkin fire in two from the office for 700 got an Oshie goal from the office instead. It’s great to see Oshie have a 20-goal season again especially after the way his season ended a year ago. It also comes as no surprise.
