First, here's Slovenia's game-tying goal late in the third period.

Former Red Wing Jan Mursak, the only Slovene with any National Hockey League experience, provided huge leadership and two goals, one to tie the game with just 1:17 remaining in the third period and another to win it 38 seconds into overtime.

"I'm happy I was able to score today and help the team", Mursak said after the game, according to the International Ice Hockey Federation. Across town, the favored Russians opened Olympic play with a 3-2 loss to Slovakia.

Brian O'Neill and Jordan Greenway scored as the US built a 2-0 lead.

Wild prospect Jordan Greenway scored his first Olympic goal in an already historic night for the Boston University junior.

Blaz Gregorc scored early in the third period for Slovenia to cut the America's lead in half.

Kroselj made a handful of quality saves to keep Slovenia in the game, and Zapolski had to do the same in the second period, stopping Urbas on a one-timer with Greenway in the box and the USA on the penalty kill.

Rochester's Brian Gionta did not figure in either American goal.

Zapolski got out of position after lunging to his left on a save. But no matter who was on the ice, Team USA was outplayed for basically an entire period and Slovenia's finishing momentum carried them right to a quick overtime win.

"It was exciting to get my first, but it would have been much better to get a win tonight", said Greenway, one of four American college players in the USA team.

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.

In Wednesday's game, the US got goals from Brian O'Neill and Boston University's Jordan Greenway. Olympic upsets happen, and the United States was on the wrong end this time.
