Video: Oshie’s first career hat trick helps Blues thump Wild

Mar 28, 2014, 1:10 AM EDT

It was a big game for the St. Louis Blues, and particularly for T.J. Oshie.

The Blues’ forward recorded his first career hat trick (you can see the video below) to help St. Louis to a thorough 5-1 win over the struggling Minnesota Wild. The 27-year-old Oshie, who was the hero for the U.S. in that memorable shootout win over Russia at the Sochi Olympics, is now up to 21 goals in the regular season for St. Louis.

He also has six points in his last two games. The Blues have also jumped to 107 points, which puts them one ahead of the Boston Bruins, victorious tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks, in the race for the Presidents’ Trophy.

    I didn’t get to see the game, so tell me, did the Wild play a goaltender tonight? Or did he just not have his gear on or what? What happened here? A Keumper kollapse?

    So happy for Oshie. His hard work is really paying off.

      Call off the search, Blackhawk fans, jhaegs is apparently OK after all.

    While I am pretty anti St Louis Blues, I am a fan of this kid.

    Like most guys he gives the standard “humble” answers in a press scrum after a good game, its during play where you actually see a players character.
