Oshie was injured in Game 4 of the team’s series against Carolina when Hurricanes' forward Warren Foegele cross-checked Oshie in the back, resulting in him being knocked over face-first into the boards, appearing to strike them with his right shoulder and in a large amount of pain.
The team responded in Game 5 back at Capital One Arena, crushing Carolina 6-0 to take a 3-2 series lead.
As the game drew to a close, the fans on deck in the nation's capital, including Redskins' linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, began chanting Oshie's name, and it will give you chills.
The Caps will look to close out the series in Carolina on Tuesday.
