Slovenia stuns USA in Olympic men's hockey opener

Canada women's curling

The preparation and the knowledge were not enough to fend off the fatigue as the United States blew a two-goal lead and lost a 3-2 stunner in overtime Wednesday night in the Olympic opener for both teams. Most recently he was playing for Frolunda HC in the Swiss league. We created a lot in the offensive zone. "If you look at the first two periods you would have thought that they would have been exhausted". But the team stopped short of carrying the momentum throughout the third period and overtime to secure its first win. Although the United States made the first offensive thrust, a quick reversal of the puck by Slovenia allowed Mursak to fly down the left wing, and his goal only 38 seconds into the extra period sent the Americans to bed grumpy. No excuses. We played as hard as we could. We just didn't score.

"I think there are some challenges for some of the countries that haven't had guys together for the world championships", Desjardins said while acknowledging in-game adjustments will be important. "He's doing his best to help us win". "And they scored a goal off one of them and from that point we were kind of on our heels".

"I'm really really happy for him", Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said in early January.

Alexa Scimeca-Knierim and Chris Knierim became the first Americans to land a quad twist in an Olympic competition when they hit the four-revolution element in the pairs free skate. "In the first two periods we were pressuring the puck, we got in on the forecheck, used our speed, created turnovers and brought pucks to the net", USA captain Brian Gionta said.

Forget yesterday's news. Get what you need today in this early-morning email. But Slovenia dealt with those same factors, and handled them well.

"It's an unfortunate outcome and it's something we're going to have to get past", forward Troy Terry said.

With captain Brian Gionta off for tripping, the US got a couple of scares when Slovenia hit the post early on the power play and then nearly scored moments later. That game, he acknowledged, will be a challenge. "I'm proud of the team and hopefully we can start looking to the next game and surprise somebody else". And after the two teams battled back-and-forth without a goal in the second frame, Peter Ceresnak found twine behind Russian goaltender Vasili Koshechkin midway through the third. The prelims comprise a three-game round robin among the four teams within Groups A, B and C. The winners of those three groups and the best second-place team earn an automatic spot in the quarterfinals, while the bottom eight teams are seeded No. 5-12 and meet in play-in games for the other four spots. We'll go into the game the same way we went into this one.... If you drag this one out and you think about it for the next 36 hours, we're not going to be ready to play in a couple days.
