Oshie Flattens Nash ... Twice
Oshie, age 22, and Nash, 24, are two guys we will definitely be hearing more and more about in future years. Both are, however, trying to accelerate the future, as the Blues and the Blue Jackets are each on track to make the Stanley Cup playoffs.
In Saturday's 4-3 shootout win by the Blues, Oshie rocked Nash, sending the Scottrade Center crowd into a frenzy.
Oshie was booed every time he touched the puck Sunday in Columbus, but managed to score the game's first goal in a 5-2 St. Louis win.
When Nash tried to put a body into Oshie, it didn't go too well for the captain.
It's kind of enjoyable to hear the Blue Jackets television broadcasters trying like crazy to label these as dirty hits.
They'll have to keep trying.
In the meantime, we have some potential for another fun rivalry involving young stars in the NHL.
