Great Olympic Hockey Shootout

It was one heck of a hockey game:

Regarded as a shootout specialist, U.S. coach Dan Bylsma called on Oshie at the contest’s climax, sending the 27-year-old out alone out to centre ice six-times to face down netminder Sergei Bobrovsky and over 11,000 screaming fans, including Russian President Vladimir Putin.

As coolly as if ice water was pumping through his veins, Oshie put four of six chances past Bobrovsky to spoil Putin’s party and put his team at the top of the Group A standings.
