TJ Oshie’s first career hat trick (Video)

On Thursday night, St. Louis Blues right winger T.J. Oshie was able to accomplish something for the first time in his NHL career. Oshie was able to score a hat trick during the Blues big 5-1 win over the Minnesota Wild at the Scottrade Center, as the Blues leapfrogged the Boston Bruins in the battle for the Presidents’ Trophy.

I think it’s just a bonus. We’re really focusing on playing good team hockey right now and that’s what you got tonight,” Oshie said, via Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Three of them just happened to go off my stick. The next night it’s going to be someone else.”
