T.J. Oshie collected a pair of assists in Friday's 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Both of Oshie's assists came on the power play, as he helped set up Alex Ovechkin's first-period goal (2-0) and Lars Eller's tally in the second frame (4-0). Oshie finished the night with a three shots on goal and one hit in 19:29 of ice time. The 31-year-old has picked up six points in his last five contests. He's up to five goals and five assists in 13 games during the postseason. This was an impressive win for Washington considering they were on the road and they didn't have Nicklas Backstrom (hand) in the lineup. The Capitals have a 1-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Final. Game 2 will be played in Tampa Bay on Sunday night.

T.J. Oshie scored the only goal for the Capitals in Thursday's 3-1 Game 4 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Oshie was parked in the slot between three Penguins defenders when teammate Nicklas Backstrom fed him a nice pass that he one-timed into the back of the net on the power play. With the game out of reach after Jake Guentzel's empty netter with 58 seconds, Oshie was involved in a fight with Kris Letang after Letang took exception with an earlier hit he received from Oshie. Oshie appeared to leave his feet on the hit and we wouldn't be surprised to see him get a call from the Department of Player Safety. It would be a tough blow for the Caps if they were without both Tom Wilson and Oshie for a huge Game 5 scheduled for Saturday.
