Report: Oshie (collarbone) likely out for playoffs

NHL

Washington Capitals winger T.J. Oshie broke his collarbone when Carolina Hurricanes forward Warren Foegele pushed him into the boards on Thursday, the Washington Post reported Saturday night.

He is “almost certain” to be out for the playoffs, according to the the newspaper, which cited two people with direct knowledge of the situation.

Oshie was injured in the third period of Game 4 of the team’s first-round playoff series and laid on the ice for several minutes following the hit. He went directly to the locker room clutching his right arm.

Washington captain Alex Ovechkin called the incident a “dirty play” on the part of Foegele, who received a minor penalty, but the rookie will not face supplemental discipline from the league.

“I was trying to lift his stick, trying to give him a little nudge,” Foegele said Thursday. “It was a little unfortunate play there. I wasn’t trying to hurt him or anything. I hope he’s OK.”

Oshie missed Game 5 on Saturday, which Washington won 6-0 to take a 3-2 series lead.
