Former Blue TJ Oshie has had a happy homecoming in St Louis with this lovely goal in the second period.
And check out the proud papa.

It was a typical drive to the net with Backstrom and Ovechkin. Ovi seemed the likely one to take the shot, but instead the puck found Transom Junction Oshie.
With a backhand shovel, Oshie lifted the puck behind frazzled infant Jake Allen. Craig Laughlin said Allen was “swimming.”
Isabelle Khurshudyan reported a mild reception from Oshie’s old fans.
Decent amount of cheers here when goal is announced as Oshie's.

And TJ’s dad Tim, who has Alzheimer’s disease, was quite happy about it, laughing with the other fathers.
As he should be. Oshie now has 16 goals, which is more than halfway to 30 I think. With the assist, Nick Backstrom has an assist in eight straight games.
