Before the fifth match, TJ Oshie had a simple request for Caps fans. "DC, I need you to make some noise tonight for my boys. I want to hear you on TV, "wrote Oshie on Twitter.
Oshie, who is probably missing for the remainder of the playoff season because of a bad shot by Warren Foegele, had that and more.
In the third period, the supporters of the Caps started strong TJ OSHIE! songs that could be heard on television.
