If the buzz surrounding True Detective on HBO is any indication, people love a good mystery. Normally, you need to script these things though. But fans at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis witnessed something of a real-life disappearing act on Tuesday night when a shot on net from Blues right winger T.J. Oshie seemingly vanished. Players, officials, fans and announcers alike seemed puzzled after the wrist shot left Oshie's stick and didn't seem to land...anywhere. Not about to let the case go unsolved Oshie circled the Ottawa Senators crease to investigate firsthand while officials resigned to the instant replay system. Oshie's ensuing 'eyewitness testimony' (read: pointing adamantly inside the net) would soon corroborate the slow-motion replay's finding. The puck hadn't actually flown out of play, but had instead tucked itself quietly underneath the roof of the net. TJ Oshie: 1. Disappearing puck: 0. Unfortunately for the Blues' impromptu detective, the Senators took the win in a shootout, 5-4.
