After dangerous hit, Oshie scores winner | NHL

Mike Sullivan, Penguins left fuming after Evgeni Malkin's... Oshie scores game-winner after getting bricked by Malkin head shot

Carlson saw enough space to lug it down to the top of the circle, and while Ovechkin was attracting Pittsburgh's attention near the paint, Oshie found a soft spot, and Carlson found Oshie.

According to multiple reports, Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin will not be suspended for his hit on Washington Capitals forward T.J. Oshie.

Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby stopped 41 of the 42 shots he faced for his first win since October 22.

Oshie's rough night began a few minutes in when he took an inadvertent stick to the face from Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta and missed the rest of the first period getting stitches on the bridge of his nose.

"My face is a little messed up, but I'm feeling pretty good now", Oshie said.

Oshie's teammates clearly admired the night he had.

"You never want to see a teammate in that situation, but the term "warrior" is brought up, and that's T.J. Oshie to a tee", Holtby said. "Oshie to a tee", Holtby said. "They come back, and they score the game-winner". Guys like him, leaders like him, they know when to show up.

Pittsburgh survived 1:09 of 4-on-4 and killed off the entire 3:51 of Washington's power play from Malkin's match penalty. The Capitals needed him to be at his best as you could argue the Pens could have won this game had he not been spectacular including a game saving breakaway in the 3rd period.

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said he wasn't concerned that Malkin might be punished further by the league, and that turned out to be the case.

Pittsburgh's Casey DeSmith stopped 20 of 22 shots in his first career start against Washington.

Just as the Caps seemed to be clinging to life and angling to eke a point out of a potential overtime game, Oshie returned to action with less than four minutes left. The only goal he allowed was Crosby's eighth of the season, which came on the power play. When Dmitry Orlov made a poor pass attempt from behind Washington's net, Jack Johnson intercepted it and fed it to Crosby for a snipe at the 12:16 mark of the first. Patric Hornqvist popped in a would-be goal, but the goalie interference call negated it.

Malkin, the Penguins' leading scorer, will be eligible to play Saturday against the Arizona Coyotes. However, the Capitals finished the night 1-for-6 on the man advantage.

An offensive-zone tripping penalty by Washington's Jakub Vrana midway through the first opened the door for the Penguins' power play.

Malkin's disqualifying penalty against Oshie occurred about 3:30 into the final frame.

With Pittsburgh on the power play early in the third period, Malkin passed the puck and lifted his right shoulder into Oshie's head and kept skating. Malkin, as we know, is oozing with talent and has consistently been a top three or four forward in the National Hockey League for the better part of his storied career, but he has a tendency to, shall we say, put his temper on full display from time to time.

"Not my concern anymore", Oshie said. "I don't really care what happens to him". I mean, he likes to be involved.

Oshie was itching to return while he was out of the game, undergoing concussion protocol and taking time on the exercise bike to drain fluids in his legs.

The two sides meet again December 19 in Washington.

Capitals: Continue their home stand Friday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
