It’s the most exciting time of the year. The Stanley Cup playoffs are back and the Washington Capitals are looking for redemption on a path toward their second Stanley Cup. Which players should you keep an eye on in this series? Read on to find out.
#3 T.J. Oshie
T.J. Oshie ended the regular season with a lower body injury. Despite this, he’s been getting work on the ice this week ahead of Game 1. During Thursday’s practice he was getting work on the ice prior to practice before wearing a light blue non contact jersey.
On Friday he was on the ice for the optional practice. He hopes to be back in the lineup for Game 1 but as with anything in sports there are no guarantees. Whether it’s Game 1 or Game 7 expect Oshie to make an impact in this series somehow.
Oshie finished the season scoring 22 goals and 21 assists for 43 points in 53 games. It was another solid season for the Oshbabe and he looks to make noise in the playoffs as it will be his first time playing in front of fans for the playoffs since his 2019 injury.
Hopefully, Oshie will be ready for Game 1 but like we said, expect to see him soon.
