Video: Re-watch Oshie’s spectacular shootout performance

The United States leans on its offensive depth to win games, but when Saturday’s match against Russia got to a shootout, they turned to T.J. Oshie to carry them the rest of the way.

Participating in an incredible six shootout attempts, including five in a row, Oshie shook off the tremendous pressure of having a game against a major and old rival hang in the balance with his slow, steady, and very effective attack.

He succeeded on four of his six shots, but even when he failed to score, it was by a slim margin as he consistently beat Russian goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky.

You can watch his heroics here.

“I was glad it ended when it did,” Oshie admitted to Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston. “I was running out of moves.”

      Blue link above, right before the tweet: “You can watch his heroics here”

      • dannymac17 - Feb 15, 2014 at 11:20 AM

        thanks, i didnt see it for some reason, maybe it was the tweet that threw me off. Considering this is NBC you would think they would deep link the video itself.

      • patthehockeyfan - Feb 15, 2014 at 11:25 AM

        agreed

        link leads to “not available” message.

        I just tried it. True, the video was only 1 minute 15 seconds, unlike the earlier one that showed all 9 minutes 42 seconds of the entire shootout; however, it did show Oshie’s shots (only). See if you can try this link:

    to all you douche bags saying that miller should have got the start… die slow

    • lowenni - Feb 15, 2014 at 11:21 AM

      Either choice is fantastic. Quick and Miller are two of the best goalies in the world today, with Quick recently winning a Conn Smythe but Miller winning Olympic MVP just a few years ago. Who’s to say if either one of them would’ve let in or stopped one more goal? Not sure if you’re a Kings fan but calm down

      • therealjr - Feb 15, 2014 at 3:56 PM

        Four years ago. Miller was good FOUR years ago. Now he’s not good enough to start for half the teams in this tournament.

    Oshie did more in 8 rounds for the USA than what Obama will have done in 8 years. Go USA!!!

      Because there always has to be some idiot who needlessly brings politics into a sports story.

      Seriously who cares? Go to Politico or Fox News.com if you wanna talk politics. This site is for hockey and we just witnessed a terrific game. Take the political crap elsewhere.

    • patthehockeyfan - Feb 15, 2014 at 11:57 AM

      Gee, pit. I’ve enjoyed reading all of your comments, even those with which I disagreed.

      But, this? An Obama slam? Really??? I’m disappointed.

    Bobrovski? I thought it was Bobrovsky…

    • patthehockeyfan - Feb 15, 2014 at 11:57 AM

      Nice. They corrected the spelling.

    • theageofquarrel - Feb 16, 2014 at 7:21 AM

      On his jersey it’s spell Bobrovski

    What a performance by Oshie. Love the “team-first” dynamic of the U.S. Little concerned about a lack of top-end scoring for us when it comes to beating teams like Canada, but it seems like our defense and goaltending are arguably the strongest in the tournament. Really expecting big things from us here, with Zetterberg out in Sweden, I think it’s down to us and Canada. What an awesome rematch that would be.

    • badgerhockey77 - Feb 15, 2014 at 12:51 PM

      Team-first indeed! Just hope Kesler and McDonagh are okay after blocking those shots. Kesler probably has broken fingers. Ouch!

    BTW i want to give the haters who doubted Quick over Miller.

    The guy is absolute money.

    • hibackhand - Feb 15, 2014 at 7:48 PM

      give what? just curious…

    Where is Blomfeld, in regards to Quick’s play?
