TJ Oshie has been hot as of late, which is not something he has been able to say much this season. He has suffered goal-less droughts of 14 and 19 games, respectively, and had a stretch of 34 games during which he did not score a single five-on-five goal. Fortunately, the winger has finally turned the corner, scoring five goals and tallying eight points in his past eight games.
What might have caused this turnaround? To Oshie, the answer is a longer, stiffer stick.
