Ex-Wing Jan Mursak, Slovenia stun United States in hockey opener

Jan Mursak tied the game late in third period and tallied the game victor in overtime as Slovenia took down the United States in the opening game of the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics.

A team who have earned a reputation for punching above their weight, Slovenia captain Jan Mursak tied the game with under two minutes to go by tapping home a rebound and scored the victor less than a minute into sudden-death overtime.

The Americans built a 2-0 lead on goals by Brian O'Neill, a former player at Yale who now plays for Jokerit in the KHL, and Jordan Greenway. Greenway will be the first African American to compete on a U.S. Olympic hockey team. After being blanked in its first two games of the preliminary round, Griffin's accomplishment will prove to be a building block for the Korean hockey program.

Those opposed to any deal with Mrs Merkel include a new group within the SPD calling itself NoGroKo (no grand coalition). Nahles said that she would start campaigning at the weekend for members to approve the coalition agreement with Merkel.

Brian Gionta, from Rochester, serves as team captain and is the only returning Olympian. 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.

In the 3-on-3 overtime, Mursak got free on the doorstep and scored high over American goalie Ryan Zapolski less than a minute into the extra frame.

The U.S. defenseman Matt Gilroy blocked an initial pass from Rok Ticar to Mursak.
