Sochi? You mean “Oshie”

In a thrilling prelim game at the 2014 Winter Olympics, the US took on host nation Russia early this morning. After a controversial Russian goal was (correctly) disallowed at the end of the 3rd period, and a scoreless OT, TJ Oshie was the hero for the American’s scoring 4/6 penalty shots including the winner below. Oshie is a household name in the US hockey community now – that’s for sure.

It was a back and forth game, awesome to watch. Gotta love hoe Olympic hockey has no commercials during periods and only allow stoppages for ice cleaning. Much faster and quicker game. The US got dominated during stretches, but the Power Play was crucial is the game, as that is where the two US goals came from in regulation.
