Blues winger T.J. Oshie scored all four goals for the U.S. in the shootout while leading the Americans to a 3-2 win over Russia on Saturday. He took six of the U.S.'s eight shots and the last five because under Olympic rules, shooters can repeat after the first round. It was an epic performance by Oshie, who beat Sergei Bobrovsky twice between the pads, once up high and another time on a deke move. In was the U.S.'s second win in as many games.

Despite the win over Russia, the United States remains a small long shot to win the gold medal this year. According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Canada is a 7/4 favorite to win the gold, followed by Russia at 11/4. The U.S. is 3/1 to win a gold medal, while Sweden is 5/1 and Finland is 14/1. Some of the mid-range long shots include the Czech Republic (22/1) and Switzerland (25/1).

The deep long shots are Slovakia at 200/1, Norway at 300/1 and Slovenia at 500/1. Latvia is also 750/1 and Austria has the worst odds among the field at 1000/1.
