His cover is blown. T.J. Oshie, the mild-mannered forward who morphed into Superman against Russia, won’t sneak up on anyone again soon, let alone against the Americans’ next opponent on Wednesday.
T.J. Oshie brainstormed while he skated to center ice, desperately trying to come up with one last move to end an epic shootout. He had already taken five shots at Sergei Bobrovsky, and the Russians were still even.
Shootouts tend to be an uneventful solution to settle non-elimination games that remain deadlocked following one overtime period. Not Saturday. T.J. Oshie and others saw to that.
Kevin Shattenkirk and Alexander Steen scored shootout goals to lift the St. Louis Blues to 4-3 win over the New York Islanders following a puzzling goal reversal call in overtime.
T.J. Oshie scored the only goal in the shootout and relief goal Brian Elliott was perfect as the St. Louis Blues beat New Jersey 4-3 on Thursday night to end the Devils five-game winning streak.
Brad Winchester scored the winning goal 5:15 in the third period and Jaroslav Halak stopped 35 shots to lift the St. Louis Blues to a 3-2 victory over the slumping New Jersey Devils on Saturday night.
