T.J. Oshie’s Night

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

At one point T.J. Oshie was asked about his second goal against the Pittsburgh Penguins Thursday night.

"Yeah," the Washington Capitals winger said, thinking. "Um, the second one? The five-hole? Backhand? Oh, the breakaway. OK."

And then he started to chuckle as he realized that he was having trouble placing the exact moment he was being asked about because there were actually three such moments on this night.

Three goals, including the game-winner in overtime, that gave the Capitals a 4-3 victory and a one-game lead in this monster of a second-round series.

"I never have this problem," Oshie said with a laugh.

He's absolutely right, of course.

Had Oshie had such problems in the past -- scoring so many goals that he couldn't recall the specific details -- he likely wouldn't have become a Washington Capital.
