Oshie leaves twice, scores winner to lift Caps over Pens

Mike Sullivan, Penguins left fuming after Evgeni Malkin's...

Evgeni Malkin was ejected from Wednesday night's Pittsburgh Penguins-Washington Capitals game for a controversial hit on TJ Oshie.

These types of hits to the head are the ones that the National Hockey League is trying to crack down on.

"He can play both ways", Nicklas Backstrom said.

Oshie proved it once more when he curled around the left faceoff circle, saw an opening and darted toward the front of the net.

"Everybody has a team or two they have success against and feel good against, and fortunately for me, it's a team in our division", said Sissons, who has scored eight of his 26 career goals against Colorado. Carlson fed him a pass in the slot, and Oshie beat Casey DeSmith high for the deciding goal at 18:44. But it's not a laughing matter for a player with a history of concussions.

He watched the clock as the seconds passed in a tie game. He did balance drills and didn't falter. The Penguins pivot appeared to raise his shoulder and connect with Oshie's head as the winger skated towards him at the blue line, sending Oshie tumbling to the ice in pain.

Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby stopped 41 of the 42 shots he faced for his first win since October 22. "I probably would have come out a lot sooner, but they wanted to be 100 percent [sure], so thanks to them".

But all that did was set up Oshie for the heroic game-winner, adding to his grinder-plus-sharpshooter reputation.

The couple was spotted at Mumbai airport, twinning in white and making everyone go "awww" over their glowing faces. The couple will also reportedly host a reception in Bengaluru and Mumbai for their family and friends.

Braden Holtby is 8-9-3 with a 3.10 goals-against average and.906 save percentage against the Penguins. He turned away 41 Pittsburgh shots, including a late breakaway by forward Garrett Wilson.

The Caps weren't able to convert on an early power play opportunity in the first period, and then they lost Oshie for the remainder of the first period after he took an unpenalized hi-stick in the face from Pens blueliner Olli Maatta. Referees didn't catch it, but Oshie was bleeding from the eye and went to get stitches 4:34 into the game.

The Capitals (also 6-4-3) did some line tinkering before Monday night's game against the Edmonton Oilers and it paid off.

Things didn't look so good after the Malkin hit.

Following the tense meeting, Oshie told reporters post-game he was unconcerned with whether or not Malkin would receive any supplemental discipline as the Capitals emerged with the victory. The Penguins star was thrown out of the game for an illegal check to the head and could get a hearing with the NHL's department of player safety.

This time Oshie missed 13:02 of game time and there was no reason to think he'd be back.

Oshie, who returned and scored the game-winner with 1:14 left, was not mad at Malkin for what he perceived to be an accident. Oshie shouted and whirled his arms as his teammates mobbed him in celebration.

"I didn't see it on TV, but all the guys that weren't playing were in a part of the training room and when I came out they said that Pittsburgh was taking it to us and Holts was standing on his head", Oshie said. "We got the W", Oshie said. "You want to be in there and try to help".
