St. Louis fans react to T.J. Oshie's winning shot

It's something that'll probably never be done again. Team USA's T.J. Oshie netted four goals in a shootout to lead the Americans to a dramatic win over Russia on Saturday.

Oshie was trending worldwide on Twitter after his game-winning effort. Teammate David Backes tweeted "What a game!!! Welcome the invention of the Oshie Trick – 4 goals in a shootout."

St. Louis Blues fans have never been prouder to call Oshie one of their own.

"I'm 55 years old and it's one of the top five things I've seen hockey-wise," said Blues fan George King.

King stopped by the True Blue team store to pick up a new Oshie Team USA jersey. But the store sold out of everything but t-shirts after Oshie won the game.

"I'm sure my wife is on her iPhone right now trying to find another place to get one."

We found a batch at Johnny Mac's Sporting Goods. But when they're gone, they're gone for good.

"What we have is what we have and they're going fast," said store manager Tyler Kluczny.

Sam Bell has owned an Oshie Jersey for years. He says it's bringing Oshie and Team USA luck.

It's 2 and 0. It's got a lot of dirt on it. It's nice and lucky, I never wash it," said Bell.

And Bell says Oshie's performance will go down in hockey history.

"It was amazing I didn't know he could shoot four times in a row. And we were flipping out every time he kept coming out."

While Oshie is winning games in Sochi, his fiancée, Lauren Cosgrove, is in St. Louis watching from a distance. And she is close to giving birth to their first child.
