T.J. Oshie passed teammate Alex Ovechkin for the team goal lead when he scored three times against Tampa Bay in a 5-3 win Saturday night.
Oshie scored back-to-back quickly in the first period to pass Ovechkin for goals scored this season. He then added an assist in the third period on John Carlson’s goal.

In mid-March, T.J. Oshie already has as many goals (26) as he scored in 2015-16 after generating one in the Washington Capitals' 4-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Oshie has those 26 goals despite being limited to 54 games, grabbing those tallies on just 113 SOG (for a resounding 23 shooting percentage). At 45 points, he's six away from matching last season's total. His +23 plus/minus would set a career-best.

He is expected to get back on the top line with Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin. Oshie will get power-play time as well, so get him back in your lineup.

T.J. Oshie (upper body) is likely to get back in the lineup on Saturday.

Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post states that T.J. Oshie is not expected to play Thursday.

Oshie on the other hand says he is hour-to-hour so there could be a discrepancy. Oshie was not on the first power play or the first line with Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin. He was replaced by Tom Wilson so if he is unable to go, Wilson is a nice play in daily fantasy. Oshie has 24 goals and 43 points in 50 games this season.
