  • Olympic Hockey Schedule 2018

Jan Mursak scored the tying goal with 1:37 left in the third period and the victor in overtime as Slovenia rallied to stun Team USA in the Olympic opener for both teams. 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.

The United States men's hockey team looked to have a win wrapped up in their Olympic opener in Pyeongchang.

With under two minutes left in the third, Slovenia pulled its goalie, Gasper Kroselj, and Mursak scored to tie the game at 2.

Before the NHL started sending players to the Olympics, the members of Team USA were selected the previous summer and would play a full schedule of more than 50 games against other national teams, college teams and pro teams to get ready for the Winter Games.

Pogba starts but no Rashford for Manchester United
Martial then had a more hard chance to score in the air after some more good work by Lukaku down the left channel. Mourinho's side, who had 13 shots - six on target, now trail league leaders Manchester City by 16 points.

The tying goal came with the Slovenia net empty. Forward Garrett Roe flew down the left wing and dished the puck to a waiting O'Neill to give the USA a 1-0 lead 17:44 in. U.S. clearly chose to nap out there today and that cost them big time. 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.

Blaz Gregorc, who had a goal and an assist for Slovenia, fired shot on goal from the point. In the end, Canada defeated Sweden, 3-1, in the final to take home gold, while the United States defeated the Czech Republic, 9-3, in the bronze medal game.

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.

In Wednesday's game, the US got goals from Brian O'Neill and Boston University's Jordan Greenway.

Leicester Boss Claude Puel Confirms AWOL Riyad Mahrez Will Not Play vs
Harry Maguire, the Leicester defender, said: "The boys will welcome Riyad back and he's no doubt one of our best players". Speaking at his pre-match press conference on Thursday, Puel said: "I think Riyad is not available for Saturday's game".

Both Team USA and Canada are unbeaten in the group stage so far, so somebody will leave the game with their first loss.

Returning to the lineup later in the season, he had trouble finding any playing time, the Red Wings put him on waivers and Mursak signed with Amur Khabarovsk of the KHL. The second game for the US was to be played against Canada, and no one knew what to expect.

The United States continues preliminary round play against Slovakia at 10:10 Eastern Thursday.
