The Washington Capitals absolutely needed to win Game Two to stay competitive in their first-round series with the Columbus Blue Jackets.
With the Capitals trailing 4-3 late in Game Two, TJ Oshie scored one of the biggest goals of his career, one-timing a shot past Sergei Bobrovsky on the power play.
The goal, which came with 3:35 remaining in the third, would send Game Two to overtime.

Nicklas Backstrom feathered the puck to Oshie in the high slot and Teej did not miss.
Oshie rifled the puck right over Bobrovsky’s shoulder and just under the bar for the goal.
The Caps bench went wild.
Alex Ovechkin scored twice from his office earlier in the night — his first career two PPG playoff game. That gave Oshie, hanging out in the middle of the ice, just enough space to convert.
