Video: Oshie’s first career hat trick helps Blues thump Wild
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.
Oshie on hatty: "I think it's just a bonus. We're really focusing on playing good team hockey right now & that's what you got tonight. (1/2)— Jeremy Rutherford (@jprutherford) March 28, 2014
Oshie cont'd: "Three of them just happened to go off my stick. The next night it's going to be someone else." (2/2)— Jeremy Rutherford (@jprutherford) March 28, 2014
