Slovenia beats United States in men's hockey on first day

Slovenia beats United States in men's hockey on first day

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

What's up with the USA men's team?

Slovenia, ranked 15th by the International Ice Hockey Federation, got on the board in the third period when Blaz Gregorc threaded a wrist shot through a crowd in front of USA goalkeeper Ryan Zapolski.

The latter still recalls waiting around for that phone call after playing in a tryout tournament overseas in which the Team USA officials spent much time scouting.

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. Uh-oh. A sloppy Team USA surrenders a goal.

"Obviously we are an older group with the National Hockey League dream behind most of us, so being able to play for Team USA is probably the highlight of my career", Kolarik said. Lamoureux's twin sister Jocelyne touched off an even larger brawl in a December 4-1 USA win in Grand Forks, N.D. When it was all over the referee had handed out 10 fighting majors and there were six US players in the penalty box, five Canadians. USA captain Brian Gionta is off for tripping 12:42 into the third, and the Americans have a penalty to kill clinging to a 2-1 lead. Brian O'Neill and Bobby Sanguinetti were credited with the assists on Greenway's goal.

"I think we played well for the first two periods, and then in the third they came out with a little more fire", Greenway said, on the NBCSN broadcast. O'Neill has two points. He shared his story on breaking the odds and the color barrier at the 2018 Games .

Ryan Zapolski made 22 saves as the United States failed to protect a two-goal lead in the final period.

Greenway corralled a loose puck on the side of the goal, had an open net and buried it.

Goals from Jan Urbas and Mursak in the third period sent the tie into overtime.

Forward Garret Roe made a nifty pass from behind the net to set up Brian O'Neil at 14:44 of the opening period to give United States of America a 1-0 lead.

Canada and Sweden are also in the hunt for the top spot on the podium, while the United States can reach the medals with a roster full of college athletes and players from the AHL. Americans have four shots compared to Slovenia's one so far.
