What an absolutely incredible game this past weekend. It is safe to say that TJ Oshie at least for today has grabbed the torch from Ryan Miller as US Hockey Olympic darling after his shootout performance. I am not a huge fan of the shootout, I think a skills contest is a terrible way to end an amazing game like that, but the Olympic rules allowing for repeat shooters is top notch. The fact that Dan Bylsma kept rolling Oshie out was incredible drama. Hopefully this victory will be the catalyst for an American run at the gold. The US was able to keep their minds right and defeat Slovenia the next day and entered the single elimination portion of the tournament in second place. The Americans will take on the winner of the Czech Republic and Slovakia on Wednesday. Let’s get’em boys!!!
