College buddies became rivals on Saturday night @NHLdotcom
T.J. Oshie and Jonathan Toews went out for dinner Friday night as best friends.

A mere 24 hours later, they were bitter rivals.

It's not that the dinner went bad, but when the Blues met the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night at Scottrade Center, the former University of North Dakota linemates were wearing opposite colors for the first time in their hockey careers; Oshie in blue, Toews in enemy red.

"It (was) a little bit different since we're usually in the same color green," Oshie said. "I don’t know if I like (playing against Toews) too much because of his work ethic, how good he is and how much offense he brings to the game. But I (was) excited for the challenge."

He was up for it, too.
