Here's the moment Slovenia ripped out Team USA's heart in OT

Here's the moment Slovenia ripped out Team USA's heart in OT

Both sides exchange penalties towards the end of the period but nothing came and both sides were still tied after 40 minutes of hockey.

Team USA still gains a point in the standings by making it to overtime.

Jordan Greenway buried a loose puck from in tight at 12:57 of the middle frame as the US took a two-goal lead.

In the absence of the NHL, which chose not to send players to Pyeongchang, the US men's national team is comprised of outcasts.

The U.S. will play Slovakia on Thursday night in another preliminary game. Goals from Brian O'Neill and Jordan Greenway helped the Americans build a 2-0 lead.

US coach Tony Granato showed a lot of trust in Greenway by having him center the top line with Ryan Stoa and captain Brian Gionta on his wings. A part of Yugoslavia until 1991, Slovenia did not qualify for an Olympic ice hockey tournament until 2014 but finished a respectable seventh in Sochi. The final game in group play is Saturday against the team from Russian Federation.

It's a far cry from the likes of Patrick Kane, Auston Matthews, Jack Eichel, and Johnny Gaudreau, but the same goes for pretty much every team in the tournament.

Slovenia, playing in its second Olympic hockey tournament ever, boasts just one player with NHL experience: forward Jan Mursak.

Team USA has won the last four World titles, seven of the last eight. Zapolski, 31, has appeared in 38 games with Jokerit of the KHL this season, sporting a 1.73 goals-against average and.932 save percentage. He collected a keepsake in the second period with a goal that gave Team USA a 2-0 lead. Initial shot by Bobby Sanguinetti. A Noah Welch turnover left Ryan Zapolski out to dry and the U.S.net wide open, but Welch makes up for it by lunging in front of the yawning crease to make the save on a sure goal. In that regard, the USA caught a break facing Slovenia first as opposed to the Russians, whom the Americans will face on Saturday.
