During postgame media, Coach Gallant said the hit on Colin Miller broke his nose
But he still finished the game
Just a few nose plugs to stop the bleeding and he was good to go.

The injury occurred in the third period seconds before the Washington Capitals scored to extend their lead to 5-2. Capitals forward T.J. Oshie hit Miller in the face while passing the puck to Nicklas Backstrom, who fed Michal Kempny for the goal.

Miller stayed in the game but later could be seen with bandages on his face to stop some bleeding. Gallant didn’t say if the injury will effect Miller’s availability for Game 5 on Thursday.
In 19 playoff games, Miller has three goals and six points with a plus-six rating and 12 penalty minutes.
