When St. Louis Blues right winger T.J Oshie had a clear shot on the net from a rebound, everyone was sure that he would score. Well mysteriously, he didn't.
In the second period of Tuesday night’s game Oshie's effort seemed to completely disappear. The announcer, like pretty much everyone else in the arena, was in disbelief that the U.S.A national team player could miss such a seemingly open goal.
But the puck hadn't landed anywhere, no-one had seen it fly over the boards and out of play, it definitely wasn't still on the ice and neither had it rippled the back of the net.
But while the officials were reviewing the play, Oshie took on the role of detective. Skating round the back of the net Oshie finds the missing puck nestled the top of the goal, tucked away.
The goal was given but it really didn't help the Blues out in the grand scheme of things. Oshie's stats got a boost but his side went on to lose to the Ottawa Senators 5-4 in overtime.
