The word epic gets thrown around liberally these days, but it’s perfectly applicable for the Olympic men’s hockey game between Team USA and Team Russia.
In front of a boisterous Russian crowd, the Americans felled their competitors in an eight-round shootout for the ages. TJ Oshie nailed home the final shot to bring home a victory for the Red, White, and Blue. He was undoubtedly the hero for the Americans, scoring four goals on six attempts in the shootout.
Below is the final shot from America’s 3-2 victory in Sochi, as well as video of the entire shootout.
