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

During the 2017 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship, Terry scored three consecutive shootout goals to beat Russian Federation in semifinals and scored the single shootout shot against Canada for the gold medal.

The USA came out strong leading in every category, American Brian O'Neill put his team up by a goal in the 1st period and later in the game Jordan Greenway made it 2-0.

In the absence of the NHL, which chose not to send players to Pyeongchang, the USA men's national team is comprised of outcasts.

USA coach Tony Granato showed a lot of trust in Greenway by having him center the top line with Ryan Stoa and captain Brian Gionta on his wings.

Josh McDaniels Reneges On Colts' Coaching Job To Return To Patriots
As Dungy mentions, a number of McDaniels prospective assistants had already signed their contracts when the news broke. So Kraft was forced to sweeten the pot, giving the Patriots one less thing to worry about this offseason.

Slovenian's had lost all 5 games against the US in prior tournaments and didn't step on the ice as favorites in this game either.

It is the first Winter Olympic men's hockey tournament in 24 years without NHL players. They have not played a single exhibition game together. Brian O'Neill gave team United States of America a 1-0 lead at the end of the first period off a nice assist from Roe Garrett from behind the net.

Canada and the US are so far superior to the rest of the world, their rivalry so heated, that former Team Canada standout Cassie Campbell-Pascall could hardly be accused of exaggerating when she told the Orange County Register in Sochi: "This is the best rivalry in Olympic sport". 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. United States of America clearly chose to nap out there today and that cost them big time. Greenway raced to the side of the net for the loose puck and scored on the rebound.

Slovenia took just three shots in the first period but continued to create more chances for itself as the game progressed. U.S. leads Slovenia 1-0 17:44 in. In that regard, the USA caught a break facing Slovenia first as opposed to the Russians, whom the Americans will face on Saturday.
