WASHINGTON - The Capitals might get a big piece of their offense back when they host the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night.
Forward T.J. Oshie hopes to return to the Washington lineup after missing the past 11 games with an upper-body injury.
"I've been hoping to play for a week, so I'm hoping to play 1/8Tuesday 3/8," Oshie told NHL.com. "We'll see what the training staff says, see what the doctors say, see what the coaches say, but today was a full 1/8practice 3/8. I passed all the tests I've got to pass."
