T.J. Oshie will now and forever be known as a shootout legend. After the first three shooters, you can send the same players over and over again in International Competition. USA used this rule to their advantage and sent T.J. Oshie five straight times following his initial attempt, and he scored on three of them. Oshie finished with four shootout goals on six shots and Russian goalie Sergei Bobrovsky will be having nightmares about Oshie the rest of the year. Watch all the shootout goals in GIF form.
