Playoff Performer of the Night | T.J. Oshie

With the Washington Capitals facing elimination, T.J. Oshie came through for his team with a pair of goals, including the game-winner, in a 3-0 victory that forced Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final.

With his team's backs against the wall, T.J. Oshie came through for the Washington Capitals with a pair of goals, including the game-winner, in a 3-0 victory that forced Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Oshie extended his four-game point streak while teammate Braden Holtby posted 24 saves in what was the netminder's first shutout of the regular and postseason.

The forward opened the game’s scoring on a power-play at 15:12 of the second period before picking up an empty-netter for his seventh goal and 15th point of the postseason.

"I think the biggest thing there is No. 8 [Alex Ovechkin] in his office over there," Oshie credited his teammates for playing like a unit through 60 minutes. "Everything, how teams play us, all depends on where he is and how they want to play him. For me, it's just a matter of a couple feet here and there to try and find a soft area. Whether it's Nick or [Evgeny Kuznetsov], they're able to get the puck into the wheelhouse, and it's up to me to find a hole."

It seemed that in facing elimination, No.77 and the Caps had the comfort of drawing on experience.

Game 7 goes Wednesday with an 8 p.m. ET puck drop at Amalie Arena to determine who will play the Vegas Golden Knights in the Stanley Cup Final.
