Oshies one-handed puck flip while falling leads to wild Capitals goal


Just call him T.J. Whoa-shie.

Washington Capitals forward T.J. Oshie scored an incredible, falling, one-handed goal on Thursday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Oshie took the puck at the blue line from teammate Lars Eller, put a nifty move on Penguins defenseman Mike Matheson and went striaght at the net.

As he lost his balance (with some help from Matheson), Oshie reached out with his left hand and poked the puck upward just enough to pop it over the right pad and under the blocker of Penguins goalie Tristan Jarry.

This one is worth way more than just a second look. Go back for a third and fourth. It’s worth it.

The goal gave the Capitals a 2-0 lead in their eventual 5-2 win.
