Caps Twitter goes nuts over Oshie's incredible goal against Pens

Capitals

With the Capitals leading the Penguins 1-0 early in the third period on Thursday, Washington winger T.J. Oshie did something that shouldn't be physically possible.

Corralling the puck from Lars Eller, Oshie found himself center ice with one defender to beat. Dangling the puck from right to left, Oshie got past Mike Matheson only needed one hand to lift a shot past Penguins netminder Tristan Jarry as he fell to the ice.

Wow. Goal of the Year, anyone?

Oshie's goal was his fifth of the season, yet it marked the first time the winger has found the back of the net during 5-on-5 hockey. All four of Oshie's previous goals this season came on the power play.

Expectedly so, Oshie's goal sent Capitals Twitter into a frenzy.
