Last night before TJ Oshie’s surprise birthday party, Tom Wilson gave the 30-year-old an early present: five backhanded slashes to the buttocks.
Yes, Wilson and Oshie’s bizarre pregame ritual continued. And today, we have three (!) videos capturing the derriere bruising.

Via reader Gene (@TheWuWu), you’ll notice that Osh power-batted Willy’s hindquarters once before turning around and taking five, rapid-fire backhanded whacks of his own.

The best part every time is Oshie over-dramatically falling over.
We also have slo-mo video from Nathan of TJ Yoshie!
So happy belated birthday, TJ. You are a man that has everything: your health, good looks, money, a beautiful family, great friends, and the unyielding power to scoar moar goals. Just know that if you were near us right now and we were holding a hockey stick, we too, would give you what you ultimately desire: 30 birthday slashes (and one to grow on).
