Awkward!: T.J. Oshie Pratfalls After Check From Kris Letang (Video)
T.J. Oshie of the St. Louis Blues appeared to be paying homage to Mack Sennett during Saturday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
You see, most players just kind of bounce off the boards when they get hit, but not Oshie. Instead, after T.J. Oshie got hit by the Penguins’ Kris Letang, he appeared to get twisted up like a pretzel before snapping back into shape, evidently unharmed.
It was an awkward spill, although it’s probably not as bad as it looks (relatively speaking, of course—remember this is hockey we’re talking about). Still, it was notable enough for Oshie himself to tweet about it (check it out here), so this might be one for the time capsule.
