T.J. Oshie of the St. Louis Blues has the National Hockey League’s second-best selling jersey since scoring four shootout goals for the U.S. Olympic hockey team in a win against host Russia at the Sochi Winter Games.
Defending Olympic champion Canada got past Latvia to advance to the semifinals of the men’s ice hockey tournament in Sochi, where host Russia was ousted by Finland in the quarterfinals and failed to medal for the third straight Winter Games.
Sochi Olympics head Dmitry Chernyshenko knew three Western horror films when he was a child: “Nightmare on Elm Street,” “Friday the 13th” and “Miracle on Ice,” a film about the U.S.’s 4-3 defeat of the Soviet Union men’s hockey team at the 1980 Games.
The Pittsburgh Penguins’ Sidney Crosby , whose 50 points in his last 26 games allowed him to pull even with rival Alex Ovechkin in career points, is poised to overtake the Washington Capitals left winger for the first time since 2008 at the National Hockey League’s Winter Classic tomorrow.
Alex Ovechkin’s third-period goal lifted the Washington Capitals to a 3-2 road victory against the New York Rangers that tied their National Hockey League second- round playoff series at one game each.
