TJ Oshie scored on four of his six shootout attempts, leading USA to victory over Russia and Ilya Kovalchuk (who had five opportunities in the shootout). International rules allow for teams to repeat players after the initial three shooters in a shootout. Video after the jump. Lavs fist pump. More reactions coming.

    I might as well go back to sleep cause nothing I do today will too that

    Dan Bylsma is such a dick to Lavy behind the bench. It is rather sad and amusing.

    And don’t forget Jonathan Quick, Kyle. He’s a goddamn hero, too.

      I wish Lavy would of slipped and knockout out Bylsma accidentally on Purpose!

      It’s ironic that Lavi is a coach on the team (in a good way). Do you think you’d ever see a time when Craig Berube would be tapped for such a position? Not in a million years.

    AAAAAARRRGGGHHH !@#$%^ set my dvr for the game, settled down with a cup of coffee at 9AM and watched a classic. With 20 seconds left in the overtime I TIMED OUT !!! Missed the whole epic shootout ! Serenity Now !@#$%

    Was debating with a friend (who’s a Caps fan) if the fan were saying “Russ-i-a” or “Cros-by-sucks”

    Thanks Bob!!! Biggest 5-hole I’ve ever seen. I don’t feel as bad that he got away now

    • Slammin Gretzky's Daughter February 15, 2014 at 6:02 pm

      Oh yeah because Bob didn’t play well the entire rest of the game, against NHL all stars, only allow goals on the powerplay, win the Vezina trophy last season and is better than Steve Mason. But yeah giving up a goal in the shoutout really softens the blow of dumbass Holmgren and Ed Snider totally fucking up the team’s goalie situation. Right.
