Oshie beats Bobrovsky in shootout as Caps beat Blue Jackets

WASHINGTON (AP) T.J. Sochi was back for one night only.

Reprising his memorable performance at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, T.J. Oshie again beat Sergei Bobrovsky in a shootout as the Washington Capitals came back to defeat the Columbus Blue Jackets 2-1 Thursday night. After beating Bobrovsky four times in six chances in the United States-Russia Olympic showdown, Oshie only needed to score once in the shootout this time to give his team an important victory with the playoffs not far away.

"I thought about it for 5 seconds maybe," Oshie said of his shootout dominance of Bobrovsky three years ago. "I was going to come in and do something else and saw something different and decided to go five-hole. It worked out."
