Oshie, Tarasenko lift Blues past Jets, 4-3
ST. LOUIS (AP) - To stay a step ahead of goaltenders, T.J. Oshie mixes up his shots in shootouts.
“I try to switch it up,” Oshie said. “I know they watch video just like we do so I try to be unpredictable out there. I’ve scored a couple on backhands, three or four in the 5-hole and a couple using the forehand.”
The crowd chanted “USA! USA! as Oshie skated in on Al Montoya and beat him. Tarasenko then scored, giving the Blues the victory in their final game before the Olympic break. Tarasenko is 3 for 5 in shootouts.
Whichever way he goes, Oshie is getting the job done. He is 7 for 10 in shootouts.
“It’s just a fun part of the game where you’ve been doing it at the end of practices with goalies since you were a kid,” Oshie said. “It’s something I’ve had fun doing.”
Coach Ken Hitchcock said there is a “calmness” on the bench when it comes to time for a shootout.
“That’s what is intriguing for me,” Hitchcock said. “First of all, we can go deep cause we have people who are good at it that are down the ladder. But we’ve also got those three guys who are pretty golden for us to be honest. We know we’re going to get a goal from one of the three for sure.”
“We know we played a good game and for it to come down to a shootout is a tough way to end it,” Scheifele said. “We know we can play with every team in this league and to lose in a shootout to a team like that is obviously good but we know we could have won that game.”
It was the fourth consecutive overtime game for St. Louis.
St. Louis was 0 for 8 on the power play and has failed to score in its last 20 chances.
