Malkin avoids suspension for Oshie hit

Mike Sullivan, Penguins left fuming after Evgeni Malkin's...

T.J. Oshie was all over the place on Wednesday, and the Capitals forward finished the night in fine fashion despite almost dying on two occasions.

Oshie proved it once more when he curled around the left faceoff circle, saw an opening and darted toward the front of the net.

I'd say about 20 minutes later everything settles down a little bit. He's the first player in franchise history to reach that milestone.

He watched the clock as the seconds passed in a tie game. He answered all of the trainers' questions. The Penguins pivot appeared to raise his shoulder and connect with Oshie's head as the winger skated towards him at the blue line, sending Oshie tumbling to the ice in pain. Pittsburgh outshot Washington 42-22, but Penguins goalie Braden Holtby came up big with 41 saves.

The Capitals, who beat the Edmonton Oilers on Monday, won back-to-back games for the first time this season. "They come back, they score the game-winner". He entered with a.888 save percentage and a 3.62 goals-against average. The Capitals forward left the game and went through the NHL's concussion protocol, having previously visited the trainers' room during the game following a high stick from the Penguins' Olli Maatta. Referees didn't catch it, but Oshie was bleeding from the eye and went to get stitches 4:34 into the game. Meanwhile, the Avalanche have now dropped four games in a row, falling to 7-5-3 on the season.

Things didn't look so good after the Malkin hit. Twice, Oshie returned to action, and the second time he did so, he delivered a shot of his own, this one a shot to the back of the Pittsburgh net, winning it for Washington. The Player Safety impression of the hit seems at odds with the criteria for a Rule 48 match penalty, in which a player is ejected if he "attempted to or deliberately injured his opponent with an illegal check to the head". Oshie the previous night because, according to the league, the in-game penalties - a five-minute major and game misconduct - were sufficient and because, again according to the league, he was bracing for impact more than he was initiating contact.

Jordan flash floods kill 11 and force tourist evacuation of Petra
In Petra, flood waters in some areas rose up to 4m (13ft), state TV reported. One of the killed is a 7-year old girl who died in Madaba.

This time Oshie missed 13:02 of game time and there was no reason to think he'd be back.

Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby traded goals, and Oshie got the victor with 1:14 left following a risky hit from Malkin. Oshie shouted and whirled his arms as his teammates mobbed him in celebration.

The normally long-winded Mike Sullivan was a man of very, very few words following the loss.

Oshie returned for the second period, and the Caps were able to ramp up their collective compete level some, and they managed to get the game tied up with a power-play goal of their own. "I didn't see it on TV, but all the guys that weren't playing were in a part of the training room and when I came out they said that Pittsburgh was taking it to us and Holts was standing on his head".

He's not wrong. But in hockey, there is occasionally a gulf between what you deserve and what you get. "You want to be in there and try to help".
