Shootout hero TJ Oshie sends shoutout to Jocelyne Lamoureux
TJ Oshie sent a shoutout from Team USA shootout hero to another.
The US women’s hockey team won gold on Thursday at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang with a 3-2 shootout win over rival Canada. Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored in the sixth round of the shootout, which turned out to be the winning goal after Maddie Rooney stopped Canada to give the US the edge.
In 2014, Oshie helped the US beat Russia at the Winter Olympics in Sochi by scoring on four of six shootout attempts, including the clincher.
Upon learning of the US’ victory over Canada, Oshie sent the following tweet congratulating scorers Monique Lamoureaux and Gigi Marvin, as well as Jocelyne Lamoureux, who scored the golden goal in the shootout.

That’s some pretty awesome love shared by Team USA hockey heroes. Unfortunately only one of them received a medal, as the men’s team finished fourth in 2014.
