T.J. Oshie has been sidelined again. The Washington Capitals’ winger will not play tonight in Montreal due to an upper-body injury.
Oshie logged just 9:00 in Saturday’s 1-0 win in Ottawa.
From the Washington Post:
Oshie absorbed a hard hit by Senators defenseman Dion Phaneuf in the second period, skating to the bench in pain before briefly going back to the locker room.
Oshie returned to the game, and on a power play in the last six minutes of the second period, he fell to the ice after a cross-check to the back by Phaneuf. Oshie stayed on the ice for the power play before returning to the bench and then going back to the locker room for a second time that period. He did not return to the game.
Oshie has already missed seven games this season due to injury. He has 13 goals and seven assists in 32 games.
The 30-year-old did skate this morning, so at the very least, it doesn’t seem like he should be out for long.
Washington’s next game after tonight’s is Wednesday at home to Pittsburgh.
