Why Is T.J. Oshie So Good In The Shootout?
T.J. Oshie is on Team USA for his shootout prowess. This is no secret. The behind-the-scenes looks at the roster selection make clear that the committee ranked him behind other forwards like Brandon Saad on pure skill, but put him on the team anyway because he's deadly when going one-on-one with a goalie. The wisdom of that selection was proven with his four-of-six performance in the shootout against Russia. His formula? Controlled randomness.
