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

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) Star winger T.J. Oshie is expected to return to the Washington lineup Tuesday night at Dallas after missing six games with a concussion.

Oshie participated in his first full practice with teammates Monday, skating on the second line with rookie Jakub Vrana and center Evgeny Kuznetsov. Oshie practiced on the first power-play unit and says he feels ready to go.

Coach Barry Trotz says he will make a final decision Tuesday morning.
