United States of America vs. Slovenia 2018 live stream

USA goalie Brandon Maxwell, Jordan Greenway, left, and Ryan Donato, right.

Jan Mursak scored the tying goal in the final minutes of regulation and the victor in overtime as Slovenia came back to stun the United States, 3-2, Wednesday night at Kwandong Hockey Centre in each team's Olympic opener.

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.

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

One athlete to watch is Jordan Greenway, from Canton, who helped the USA win gold at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship and the 2015 IIHF U18 Men's World Hockey Championship. He scored one goal in 19 games. Terry also helped the US win gold in the 2015 IIHF U18 Men's World Hockey Championship and was drafted to the Anaheim Ducks in 2015.

Goals from Jan Urbas and Mursak in the third period sent the tie into overtime. She also played on the team in 2002 and 2006.

Canada and the USA 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".

Blaz Gregorc scored early in the third period for Slovenia to cut the America's lead in half. Kroselj stopped 34 of the 36 shots he faced to pick up the victory, giving up goals to Brian O'Neill and Jordan Greenway. The U.S. will have to rebound quickly; its next game is on February 16 against Slovakia - a team coming off a big opening win against the Russians. Both teams enter the matchup 2-0, with wins over Finland and the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation.

We know the U.S.is a longshot in this tournament, but Slovenia is even more so. Many spent stints in the NHL - five games here, 10 more there - before turning to a journeyman career in European leagues. Forward Garrett Roe flew down the left wing and dished the puck to a waiting O'Neill to give the United States a 1-0 lead 17:44 in.

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.

Ryan Zapolski stopped 22 of the 25 shots he faced in net for the USA, while Kroselj allowed two goals on 36 shots for Slovenia. James Wisniewski goes off for high-sticking and we're four aside.
