During the 2014 Winter Olympics, St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie made a strong statement that he’s the master of shootouts. He probably can’t boast the same mastery of the putting green, at least not based on this video evidence from the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship:
(Let’s be honest, this sort of thing happens all the time at miniature golf courses across the United States, although some sort of fake windmill is usually involved.)
The good news for Oshie, 27, isn’t currently ranked last in the tournament. He’s currently ahead of comedians (including “Larry the Cable Guy” and Ray Romano) and even a stray athlete or two (Jason Taylor, fellow hockey Olympian Hilary Knight). The bad news is that he’s currently ranked behind a long list of people, ranging from “Miracle on Ice” legend Mike Eruzione to Dan Quayle (!) to Joe Sakic.
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
