"I think when you get desperate, that's when you get sporadic and guys start throwing the puck around," he said. "I think the calmer you can be in those situations, the better chance you have of scoring. We got two of the calmest in the league probably, with Kuzy and Nicky over there working the half-wall and the goal line. I think they settle a lot of us down. Me and Tom obviously don't have the same amount of poise that they have, which is probably why we're in front of the net and in the middle."
"I don't know if you could tell my reaction, but right after I put it in I was kind of regretting that (Kuznetsov) didn't grab it first," Oshie said. "But you can't pass those ones up, especially when you're down a goal ... But no, I wish it would have bounced a little closer to him so he could have got the hat trick."
