Capitals' T.J. Oshie is ready to return from concussion

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) T.J. Oshie has had concussions before, so he knew what not to do this time.

After taking a hit to the head from San Jose's Joe Thornton on Dec. 6, the star winger didn't push Washington Capitals trainers to get back on to the ice.

"I knew I wasn't right," Oshie said Monday. "You always want to get back earlier, but when you're dealing with the head I think it's better safe than sorry."
