After spending two games mixing it up with Team Canada, TJ Oshie has returned to his normal form as a playmaker and finisher. In the first period against Finland, Oshie scored his first goal of the World Cup of Hockey pre-tournament, one-timing a shot past Pekka Rinne from the slot.

Hockey Hall of Famer Brett Hull gushed about Oshie as a player during ESPN’s first intermission highlights.
“Well he’s a two-headed monster for anybody who has to play against him,” Hull said. “Jon Gruden would love him. He’s got the brains to play quarterback and he has the motor like a defensive end – he never stops. He’s one of the smartest guys in the NHL.”
Caps defenseman John Carlson also assisted on a second period Derek Stepan goal.
