Blues teammate Berglund happy for Oshie

by Dan Rosen

SOCHI -- As he watched the drama unfold across the street in Shayba Arena, Sweden forward Patrik Berglund knew what was coming before his St. Louis Blues teammate T.J. Oshie dipped into his well of shootout moves at Bolshoy Ice Dome.

Berglund was in the dressing room with his teammates preparing to play Latvia when the United States and Russia were in their shootout. They were watching it on TV as Oshie scored four times in six attempts to lift the Americans to a 3-2 win.

"When he was going to shoot the first one I told the guys in the locker room that's a guaranteed goal," Berglund said following Sweden's 5-3 win against Latvia. "He just went in and put it in as he always does."

Berglund sees Oshie work on his shootout moves after or during just about every practice. He knows all of Oshie's moves, and they were all on display Saturday.

"He's got some really great moves, two or three of them," Berglund said. "He switches them up and the goalie never knows which one he's going to make. That was a real show to watch. I'm happy for him."
