Jan Mursak who scored the winning goal, Jan Urbas, Rok Ticar of Slovenia and teammates celebrate the victory in overtime following the Ice Hockey Men Preliminary Round match between US and Slovenia at Kwandong Hockey Centre on February 14, 2018 in Gangneung, South Korea. A 2-0 lead, on goals by Brian O'Neill and Jordan Greenway, didn't really seem to do Team USA's performance total justice as Slovenia didn't get a lot going in their offensive zone.

For the United States, the loss represented a huge stumble out of the gate in the first quadrennial Olympic tournament played without National Hockey League players since 1994.

With under two minutes left in the third, Slovenia pulled its goalie, Gasper Kroselj, and Mursak scored to tie the game at 2. As a result, he ended up signing a one day contract to the Rochester Americans to play one game in front of his hometown crowd before he shipped off to South Korea.

The police said that they will need to expand the road blog and send more personnel to the scene for the investigation. An executive with The Kowloon Motor Bus Co. says $10,230 will be paid to the family of each victim.

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. Slovenia only gets two, instead of three, since the win did not come in regulation.

Slovenia, ranked 15th by the International Ice Hockey Federation, got on the board in the third period when Blaz Gregorc threaded a wrist shot through a crowd in front of USA goalkeeper Ryan Zapolski.

There are five different games set to be played Wednesday, led by the USA-Canada women's hockey matchup.

The United States could be poised to finally end Canada's run of four straight Olympic gold medals, with Wednesday's game serving as a litmus test for where both teams stand entering the medal round. After four seasons with the AHL Griffins, he made his Red Wings debut in the 2010-11 season.

In overtime, Mursak was left alone in front of the U.S.net to score the game-winning goal off a pass from Gregorc. He was on the ice for Slovenia's first goal, but not the final two. The second game for the US was to be played against Canada, and no one knew what to expect.

Team USA's next preliminary round game will be against Slovakia at 10:10 p.m ET Thursday night in the United States (12:10 p.m. on Friday in PyeongChang).
