"Our team will play with a lot of passion and pride for the U.S. crest", Kolarik said.

Since the 1998 Nagano Games, the world's best hockey players meet every four years in the ultimate display of national pride and for global bragging rights.

At least the American men weren't the only team to blow a 2-0 lead. All four have significant global experience, but Terry is probably the most recognizable name as he was the hero who scored the shootout-winning goal in the gold medal game at last year's World Junior Championships.

Slovenia is competing in Olympic men's hockey for just the second time in the country's history. Mursak tied the game on a rebound goal with 1:37 to play. Kroselj stopped 34 of the 36 shots he faced to pick up the victory, giving up goals to Brian O'Neill and Jordan Greenway. Blaz Gregorc scores 5:49 into the third period to get Slovenia on the board, cutting the US lead to 2-1.

"They will represent the U.S. like every American team does". Brian O'Neill gave team United States of America a 1-0 lead at the end of the first period off a nice assist from Roe Garrett from behind the net.

In overtime, Mursak was left alone in front of the U.S.net to score the game-winning goal off a pass from Gregorc. Though the US women are defending world champs, the Canadians bring a 22-game Olympic winning streak into the contest.

Before the NHL started sending players to the Olympics, the members of Team USA were selected the previous summer and would play a full schedule of more than 50 games against other national teams, college teams and pro teams to get ready for the Winter Games. Last week, I asked John for a scouting report on his brother. Nothing fancy, but he can put up some put up some greasy goals.

"I think we can show that we are a talented group of hockey players", Kolarik said.

One of the new things players on either side of the border war agree on is that the rivalry brings out the best with both teams. The team is in Group B, which also includes Slovakia and the Russian team. The 31-year-old has since bounced around Europe between various leagues, including the KHL and Swiss-A.
