    Slovenia pulled off one of the biggest upsets of PyeongChang 2018 thus far, rallying to defeat the United States 3-2 in overtime during the men’s hockey opener.

    Jan Mursak scored his second goal of the game 38 seconds into overtime.

    More to come.

    No one expected this kind of showing from Slovenia, which looked overmatched in the first two periods and is mostly known for having a star in Los Angeles Kings captain Anze Kopitar. There was no Kopitar — this is the first Olympics since 1994 without NHL players — but still the same pluck and no-quit attitude that helped the Slovenians beat rival Slovakia in Sochi for one of the biggest victories in national history.

    Slovenia added another by upsetting the U.S. and gets the Russians next.

    “I’m proud of my guys,” Mursak said. “I’m proud of the team and hopefully we can start looking to the next game and surprise somebody else.”

    The Americans didn’t expect to be surprised by much but go back to the drawing board to prepare to face Slovakia on Friday.

    Hockey and Ice Skating are my favorite Winter Olympic sports to watch. 

    My favorite women’s skater is Alina Zagitova/Russia. Only 15 years old! I predict she wins Gold in the Ladies Single Free Skating.

    I imagine some of them be like “Are we playing against the same country again?!”

    They weren’t allowed to represent their country under Russian flag because of that anti-doping travestry?

    Russians don’t take more drugs than athletes from other countries. It’s mostly due to politics. Russian top athletes were banned from participating. Even those athletes who were never tested negative. It’s politics.
