J. Oshie out indefinitely after hit by Warren Foegele

Hurricanes Survive Capitals' Late Surge to Pull Even in Series

Hurricanes Survive Capitals' Late Surge to Pull Even in Series

T.J. Oshie suffered the injury in the Washington Capitals' 2-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes in Game 4 of their first-round match-up.

Foegele picked up right where he left off from his two-goal effort in Monday night's 5-0 win, flicking home the game's first goal 17 seconds in after a timely rush down the middle of the ice by Jaccob Slavin drew the attention of a scrambling Caps' defense.

Oshie was injured in the third period when he was shoved from behind by Hurricanes rookie Warren Foegele and sent crashing into the boards.

Capitals head coach Todd Reirden echoed Ovechkin's sentiments, calling the hit a "dangerous play" on a 'defenseless player, ' while noting that Oshie will be out for an extended period, according to ESPN's Emily Kaplan.

Oshie and Kempny were key-pieces to the Capitals' Stanley-Cup run last postseason, and missing them makes it much more hard for the Caps to go back-to-back. From there, the Hurricanes fed off their home crowd's energy and stepped up the physicality, allowing Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom little room to operate in the early going. It has to be not two minutes. "It has to be a different call".

"If the guy's hurt, it's a dirty play", Ovechkin told reporters after the game.

"I was trying to lift his stick, trying to give him a little nudge. I hope he's OK", Foegele said, according to Khurshudyan.

Oshie missed 23 games this season with concussion-like symptoms.

The Capitals are planning to provide more information on the extent and Oshie's injury on Friday. The series is tied 2-2.
