Blues’ T.J. Oshie Scores Impressive Backhand Goal From Knees (Video)


T.J Oshie is known for his prowess in the shootout, but the St. Louis Blues forward showed what he can do in five-on-five play Friday night.

During his team’s Game 5 Stanley Cup playoff matchup against the Chicago Blackhawks, Oshie was fed a pass from Alexander Steen and took it to the net. Blackhawks players Marian Hossa and Niklas Hjalmarsson got their sticks in Oshie’s way and tripped him up, but the forward still was able to corral the puck and fire off a backhand shot from his knees past Corey Crawford.

The game ended up going into overtime, where the Blackhawks won on an impressive Jonathan Toews goal.
