T.J. Oshie exited Friday's game due to what the team called after the game a lower body injury. That is not ideal considering he is one of the team's best players and because the Caps are just four games out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
But good news came on Saturday as the Capitals tweeted out that Oshie will travel with the team to Pittsburgh for Sunday's game and is considered day-to-day.

As day-to-day, it appears Oshie has avoided any serious injury.
Oshie has been hitting his stride of late with five goals and four assists in his last nine games, just in time for the postseason. Obviously the Caps do not want to see an injury disrupt that as the team prepares for the postseason.
