Team USA Starts Olympic Men's Hockey Tournament With Overtime Loss To Slovenia

US Olympic Men's Hockey: Dates, times and Upstate New York athletes

For 40 minutes things went swimmingly for the star-less US men's hockey team in its Olympic opener against Slovenia.

Jan Mursak who scored the winning goal, Jan Urbas, Rok Ticar of Slovenia and teammates celebrate the victory in overtime following the Ice Hockey Men Preliminary Round match between U.S. and Slovenia at Kwandong Hockey Centre on February 14, 2018 in Gangneung, South Korea. Goals by Brian O'Neill and Jordan Greenway had staked the Americans to a two-goal lead after two periods, and Slovenia had managed just 12 shots against the U.S.net. As a result, he ended up signing a one day contract to the Rochester Americans to play one game in front of his hometown crowd before he shipped off to South Korea.

Bobby Sanguinetti reacts after Slovenia scores the game-tying goal against the United States at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 on February 14, 2018 in Gangneung, South Korea. It would turn out to be the game-winning goal, sending Slovakia to the top of Group B.

Southampton boss Pellegrino urges fans not to jeer Van Dijk
Van Dijk actually missed the win over City and made his league debut against Swansea, but things didn't go according to plan. For the first, arriving after just six minutes, Salah spotted Firmino's darting run into the area.

Kroselj made a handful of quality saves to keep Slovenia in the game, and Zapolski had to do the same in the second period, stopping Urbas on a one-timer with Greenway in the box and the US on the penalty kill.

It's going to be a much different competition this year without the participation of the National Hockey League, which declined to stop its season to send players to Pyeongchang, but a run toward gold by the Americans would be just as sweet.

Both Team USA and Canada are unbeaten in the group stage so far, so somebody will leave the game with their first loss. Twenty-three others have represented the U.S.in global competitions and captured 14 medals.

During the probe, Oxfam dismissed four staff members and another three resigned, including van Hauwermeiren. Oxfam said it was "shocked and dismayed" by the new Chad claims.

Zapolski got out of position after lunging to his left on a save. "It's a good team, I'll give them credit".

After the 2012 lockout, preparing for a shot at a full season with the Wings, Mursak broke his collarbone. After being blanked in its first two games of the preliminary round, Griffin's accomplishment will prove to be a building block for the Korean hockey program. A part of Yugoslavia until 1991, Slovenia did not qualify for an Olympic ice hockey tournament until 2014 but finished a respectable seventh in Sochi.
