Team USA Falls To Team Slovenia In OT

GANGNEUNG, South Korea — Brian O'Neill (Yardley, Pa.) and Jordan Greenway (Canton, N.Y.) each netted goals but the U.S. Olympic Men’s Ice Hockey Team fell to Slovenia in overtime, 3-2, here tonight in its opening game at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games at the Kwandong Hockey Centre.  

"I thought we played two great periods," said Tony Granato, head coach of the 2018 U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team. “We were on our heels in the third at times and they took advantage. Give them credit. All-in-all, I liked the way we played. We’ve got a terrific group and we’ll be ready to play Slovakia."

The U.S. Olympic Men’s Ice Hockey Team (0-0-1-0/W-OTW-OTL-L) continues preliminary round play against Slovakia on Friday (Feb. 16) at 12:10 p.m. local time, making it a 10:10 p.m. ET puck drop on Thursday (Feb. 15) in the U.S. That contest will be televised live on CNBC in addition to being streamed on NBCOlympics.com.
