Capital Ups and Downs: Playoffs Week One


Washington’s favorite bird man tallied three assists through Games 1 and 2, including a beauty of a no-look pass to Orpik for the OT game-winner on Saturday.


He scored one heck of a goal in Game 2 when he had some fancy footwork on display and kicked Justin Williams ’ stick out of his way to give himself room to shoot.


The penalties weren’t great, but Oshie showing up to score in a big moment to put the Caps up 2-0 is an encouraging sign.


He also almost won Game 2 for Washington in the final seconds of regulation, but Mrazek made quite the save to force OT.


Despite being in the Capitals’ lineup for both games, Christian Djoos only played a total of 13:32, including a measly 5;44 on Saturday afternoon.


He got the passing sequence for Oshie’s goal in Game 2 started, facilitating a good zone exit with Niskanen .
