What made this game so remarkable for USA hockey players? The teams were tied at 2-2 at the end of regulation so the game went into a shootout. American TJ Oshie scored four times on six tries to ensure a U.S. victory. Rarely does a hockey game come down to one player!

When Timothy Leif "T J" Oshie isn't winning in front of the world, he is an American professional ice hockey center currently playing for the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League. He was drafted by St. Louis in the first round, 24th overall, in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Before all the hoopla in Sochi, the NHL player was just another athlete. Not anymore.
