Oshie Has a Hat Trick as the Caps Climb To 100 Points And Clinch A Playoff Spot
Alllll right, here we go. The Caps have once again clinched a playoff spot. After losing 4 straight last week, they bounced back, winning 2 of their next 3 to get that beautiful 100 point mark and clinch their spot in the postseason. Oshie had a hat trick yesterday as they rolled through the Lightning 5-3. It also puts Oshie at 29 goals to Ovi’s 28, making it a real possibility that someone besides Ovi will finish with the Caps goal lead since Nam, in 13 fewer games played no less.
As long as Ovi is fresh for the playoffs, that’s all anyone really cares about. He averages a point per game in the postseason as it is, now with fresher legs because of decreased regular season minutes, let’s see what he can do.
Should be a fucking battle.
The Metro is unreal tough. Even the Rangers, who are sitting in the first wild card spot, have 93 points.
Pretty cool that finally we are just 11 games away from the playoffs. What can possibly go wrong?
