US men's hockey team advances to quarters

Olympics Ice Hockey Men Team Group B- USA-SLO

Donato, who also netted two goals against Slovakia in a 2-1 group-stage victory, blasted a rebound into the far top corner 96 seconds into the second period to put the United States of America ahead 1-0.

"It's do-or-die obviously. We came in with the intention of being confident, not just being anxious about going home. We have to attack, we have to get in on the forecheck, we have to use our offensive players that we do have, the skillset that we do have".

Goalie Ryan Zapolski stopped 22 of 23 shots for Team USA, while Jan Laco stopped 26 of 31 shots for Slovakia. University of Denver hockey star Troy Terry helped the team with three assists.

"It shows how strong and how resilient a team we are", Zapolski said.

Trump also authorized a strike on a Syrian air base that United States intelligence sources believed was involved in chemical-weapons attacks on civilians.

Donato, 21, has now tallied five points in four Olympic games - highlighted by another two-goal performance against Slovakia back on February 16.

GANGNEUNG, South Korea (AP) - Tony Granato knew going into the Olympics that Ryan Zapolski would be his goaltender and that the college kids on the Team USA roster would be counted on to supply offense. The U.S. advanced to the quarterfinals against the Czech Republic. James Wisniewski scored on a 5-on-3 power play, and Mark Arcobello netted the third goal of the period after being set up in the slot by Terry.

But Donato, who was drafted by the Bruins in the second round of the 2014 NHL Draft, wasn't done yet.

"We've had a lot of chances that we didn't score on", Donato said, the Associated Press reported. Between periods, Donato saw video of his dad - who had four goals for the U.S.at the 1992 Albertville Games and coaches him at Harvard - in the stands and said, "I've never seen him smile like that before". The Czechs were flawless during the preliminary round, including beating Canada 3-2 in a shootout, which was Canada's first loss in Olympic hockey since 2010.

President Trump endorses Mitt Romney in Utah Senate race
In June of that year, Trump tweeted that Romney had "choked like a dog" in losing to former President Barack Obama. I don't think he wants your endorsement as it's proven to be the kiss of death", yet another tweet added.

Donato's two goals, both assisted by Terry, represented a much-needed breakout for the USA college kids.

Zapolski is among the best goaltenders in the Kontinental Hockey League but conceded "maybe things weren't going the way I had hoped the first few games" when he allowed a few soft goals.

"When the game was on the line, that five-on-three was huge", Granato said. Norway will face the Russians in its first Olympic quarterfinal appearance, while Slovenia played without Ziga Jeglic, who was suspended for doping. "We put them on our team because they're going to be big parts of it and have major impact on how we do". But I think what we learned from our team is it doesn't matter what the other team does.

Later games pit Finland against South Korea, the victor facing two-time defending champion Canada in a quarter-final, and Switzerland against Germany, with the victor meeting unbeaten Sweden on Wednesday. St. Cloud State defenseman Will Borgen was a healthy scratch again for the United States. Former NHL player and coach Craig Ramsay coaches Slovakia.
