Immediately after Game 5 ended, Stanley Cup Champion T.J. Oshie began doing the obligatory media rounds.
He was soon asked about his dad, who suffers from an advanced form of Alzheimer's disease:
A tearful T.J. Oshie, now a #StanleyCup Champion: "This win… it's for my family, it's for my two little girls. I got my name on something now...— 106.7 The Fan (@1067theFan) June 8, 2018
"It's for my dad, who has Alzheimer's. His memory's slipped a little these days. This is one memory I don't think he’s gonna forget."
