T.J. Oshie lived under the Golden Knights’ skin in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final.

He opened the scoring by banging home a rebound halfway through the first period.

And the Capitals wouldn’t look back.

Figuratively, that is. Because Oshie did actually look back at one point in the third period, to notice a pursuant Colin Miller.

The forward reacted by laying off a pass to Nicklas Backstrom before absolutely leveling Miller as the Caps scored to take a 5-2 lead.

Unable to contain him by legal means, Brayden McNabb resorted to cross-checking Oshie with two minutes remaining in the blowout.

Cool, guy.

McNabb was whistled, and a fracas ensued. Oshie and the Knights’ Deryk Engelland were sent off with 10-minute game misconducts.

Following the 6-2 defeat, Knights head coach Gerard Gallant revealed Miller had sustained a broken nose. And he said it came by way of Oshie’s elbow during the hit above.

“[The refs] didn’t see a penalty,” Gallant complained. “I think everyone saw it. He gave him a pretty good elbow.”

Then he acted as if he’d seen a replay and knew his team’d been hosed.

Yeah, about that …

The Caps lead the series 3-1.
