Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin called TJ Oshie a “tough customer” after TJ’s fight with enforcer Adam McQuaid Friday. Ovechkin was impressed with how his new linemate could dish out punishment and take it as well.
“I see a couple good hits in his face,” Ovechkin said to NHL.com’s Katie Brown.
After reviewing photos from RMNB’s Amanda Bowen and social media, I can confirm that Ovechkin saw those “good hits in [Oshie’s] face.” Ovechkin and the Bruins’ Chris Kelly had front-row seats to the fight. Together they watched, arms wrapped around each other like they were taking Homecoming photos.
