T.J. Oshie recorded two power play goals last night against the New York Rangers for the second time in his career (Oct. 9, 2017) to help lead Washington to a 5-2 win. Oshie has recorded a power play goal in 34 games as a Capital, and Washington is 26-3-5 in games where he does. Last night marked Oshie's 300th career game as a Capital, and he's recorded exactly 108 goals and 108 assists since joining Washington. Oshie's goal total since 2015-16, his first year with the Capitals, ranks second on the team (Alex Ovechkin: 188). 

With the win, the Capitals improved to 5-2-2 on the season and extended their point streak against New York to 11 games (10-0-1). Additionally, Washington improved to 105-51-23 against the Metropolitan Division all-time, having recorded the most wins and points (233) in the NHL against the division since its inception in 2013.
