TJ Oshie Still Filthy As Ever in Shootout

James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports

They say that change is constant, but I beg to differ. Some things never change. Take TJ Oshie’s shootout skills, for example. 

As he has become accustomed to doing, Oshie led-off the Capitals shootout Monday night against his former team, the St. Louis Blues, and he did not disappoint.

Oshie’s shootout goal included a patented “Oshie death stare” to the goalie, after he left him helpless in the goal crease.

Andre Burakovsky would seal the victory for the Capitals with a scorching five-hole shot in the final shootout attempt. How “Swede” it is.


Philipp Grubauer would come up big, and shut the door on the Blues. The same two teams will go at it again on Wednesday night at Scout arena in Kansas City, Missouri.
