Tough, ‘embarrassing’ night for Blues’ Oshie

St. Louis Blues’ forward T.J. Oshie scored twice, so one might assume he had a pretty good night.

He was also a minus-three, and the Blues coughed up two separate leads in a 4-3 L.A. Kings win on Monday night. The best-of-seven Western Conference quarter-final is now tied two-games apiece as it heads back to St. Louis for Game 5.

Oshie was none to pleased with his overall performance, as relayed on Twitter by Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“I could have single handedly prevented three of their goals. Being on the ice for all four of other team’s goals is pretty…embarrassing. It’s probably the worst complete hockey game I’ve played all year,” said Oshie.

The Blues had a two-goal lead within the first five minutes of the first period, thanks in part to Oshie’s first goal of the night. The Kings tied it up and Oshie again gave the Blues the lead in the second period.

But the Kings wouldn’t be denied and they came back to earn the victory.

    The worst thing about an early lead is it gives the other team more time to mount a comeback.Great, hard fought series so far, Go Kings!

      Person A: hey man, like who’s this Windmiller guy ?

      Person B: I don’t know man, but he’s gotta be ‘good people’ being a King’s fan and all …

        That might be the weirdest and most clear-cut example of dissociative identity disorder I’ve ever seen.
