A look at the damage #77 has done to a certain rival since arriving in DC

NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins at Washington Capitals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

5 - Number of game-winning goals by T.J. Oshie against the Penguins (regular season and playoffs) in his career, including last night’s late-game warrior performance.

That’s tied for second-most among all active players, trailing only LA’s Ilya Kovalchuk (8), and is also tied for second-most in franchise history (with Jeff Halpern, behind Peter Bondra’s 6) - ahead of, surprisingly, Alex Ovechkin with “just” 4 in almost 40 more games played.

Since joining the Caps, Oshie has established himself as a tried and true Penguin killer, racking up 20 goals and 38 points in 43 games - his highest total against any single team in the League.
