Upsets of Team USA, OAR show men's tournament is truly wide open

Slovenia overcame a two-goal deficit in the third period, tying the game late and then winning it in overtime for a 3-2 triumph as the men's hockey tournament began with a pair of upsets.

Jan Mursak struck the victor just 38 seconds into overtime as Slovenia recovered from trailing 2-0 midway through the second period. Kroselj stopped 34 of the 36 shots he faced to pick up the victory, giving up goals to Brian O'Neill and Jordan Greenway.

In order to achieve the best possible finish in Group B, the United States must knock off Slovenia and Slovakia and hope to play the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation to a tight game.

After a feeling-out period in the first few minutes and American defenseman Noah Welch sliding in front of a wide-open net for the save of the game, the US began drawing penalties with its speed and then found a way to cash in.

In the five-minute, sudden-death overtime, Slovenia scored in less than a minute to end the game. At the 2014 Games, the USA lost in the bronze-medal game. "But I think the whole team showed a really good performance today".

The big center wheeled to his left, pirouetted, carried the puck along with him through the rotation and fired it cleanly behind Zapolski.

Pavel Datsyuk and Ilya Kovalchuk both had scoring chances but the Slovakian goalie Branislav Konrad wasn't going to give anything to them.

Jan Mursak played just 46 games in the National Hockey League after he was drafted in the 6th round by the Detroit Red Wings in 2006. 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. 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.

The game starts at 10:10 p.m. ET and will be broadcast live on NBCSN. After the US reached double-digits in number of shots taken, Brian O'Neill, a 29-year-old who plays in Finland, scored first for Team USA with just more than two minutes left in the first period.
