Carolina Hurricanes winger Warren Foegele addressed his shove that injured T.J. Oshie during the third period of Game 4 of their first-round playoff series on Thursday night.

Foegele crosschecked Oshie from behind into the boards late in the game. The Washington Capitals star went down to the ice in pain, holding his arm. Foegele, who scored the first goal of the game in Carolina’s 2-1 win, only received a minor penalty for boarding.

He said after the game that the play was “unfortunate” and he wasn’t trying to hurt Oshie, according to the Washington Post’s Isabelle Khurshudyan.

That’s not going to cut it for the Caps. They were furious after the game, with Alex Ovechkin calling the play “dirty.”

Expect things to get physical when the team’s meet for Game 5 on Saturday. Also expect the league to examine the play for potential discipline.
