Slovak ice hockey team goes home

Donato, a Harvard junior, scored bookend goals in the game and Troy Terry, a University of Denver junior, added three assists as Team USA defeated Slovakia 5-1 to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Olympic tournament, where the us men will play Czech Republic Wednesday.

Just before the shootout, Oshie - who converted four of six shots in a legendary shootout win over Russian Federation four years ago in Sochi - tweeted his support for Terry, but Francouz was able to save a multiple-fake try by the University of Denver player. We're also seeing some other roster decisions pay off, such as adding James Wisniewski simply as a power play specialist.

After a scoreless first period, the US raced clear with three goals in the second as Donato set the ball rolling when he snapped in a loose puck past goaltender Jan Laco after Terry's errant shot on a breakaway had come back off the boards.

Ted Donato, a former Boston Bruin player and now the coach at Harvard, had four goals and three assists in 1992 at the Games in Albertville, France and had just arrived in Pyeongchang with Tuesday's game being the first he had seen in person. The Czechs won all three of their games in the group stage to earn a bye into the quarterfinals. "He's fun to play with and if I get the puck to him I know it's got a pretty good chance of going in".

There Ted was again after Ryan scored the U.S.' final goal in the third period. Zapolski was on his game after giving up some soft goals in the preliminary round and showed his toughness when he took the shot to the head from Nagy. A correction to this tweet said Brandon Maxwell will back up starting goalie Ryan Zapolski, not David Leggio. It would take a little longer for the finally gel.

The two teams skated to a 0-0 tie after a first period that saw Slovakia outshoot the a 9-7 margin.

Wednesday night in Team USA's first game they were ahead late and lost the lead and eventually the game. The Czech Republic topped Group A with a 2-0-1 record, beating South Korea and Switzerland in regulation and Canada in overtime.

College kids again led the way for the USA, which scored more against Slovakia then it did in all three preliminary-round games. What is interesting is that as much as we've talked about the dominance of these two countries, worldwide ice hockey officials are pleased enough with the progress of other women's programs that the women's hockey tournament will expand from eight teams to 10 for the 2022 Olympics in Beijing. "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". His first goal was the result of a nice bounce off the boards, and Donato was able to put it past Slovakian goaltender Jan Laco.
