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.
