T.J. Oshie dekes, scores from his knees

T.J. Oshie certainly saved his best for last.

In the final game of the season last night against the Nashville Predators, young star T.J. Oshie made a dazzling move after getting tripped up as he cut to the net to receive a centering pass from teammate Kevin Shattenkirk. Props to Shattenkirk on this play for his patience with the puck on the boards as he swung around and eyed a streaking Oshie headed toward the net. The Blues, despite being out of playoff contention, leveled a 2-0 shutout against division rivals the Nashville Predators. Oshie, who missed half the season due to injury, finished with 12 goals and 22 assists in 49 games for the Blues and will be counted upon to contribute strongly next season. Check out a video of the goal below:
