Boston Bruins: Ryan Donato continues to dazzle at Olympics

Zapolski guards the net

This time it was Troy Terry instead of T.J. Oshie and Ryan Zapolski instead of Jonathan Quick.

Later games pit Finland against South Korea, the victor facing two-time defending champion Canada in a quarter-final, and Switzerland against Germany, with the victor meeting unbeaten Sweden on Wednesday. The Russians bowled over the Americans in their preliminary round match, and that is who will likely await Team USA on Friday in the semifinals should it get past the Czechs.

Jan Laco stopped 28 shots, and Peter Ceresnak scored, but Slovakia's tournament came to an end with the loss.

"We came in with the idea of being confident", forward Ryan Donato said.

As was the case in Lake Placid, the US team in Pyeongchang does not include any NHL players, after the league announced in April past year that it would not release its players to take part in the Olympics.

"He's a really tough kid, and you see how much just of a natural goal-scorer he is", Terry said. "For it to end in a shootout, it's hard".

The 34-year-old sniped a dramatic overtime victor for a tight, 2-1 victory over Switzerland in the qualification round. The U.S. looked tired after facing Slovakia in the qualification round a day earlier and was outshot 29-20. Terry, as he has done all Olympics, used his speed to get to the net, and Donato picked up the loose puck and beat Laco 1:36 into the period.

Auburn's Anfernee McLemore Stretchered Off Court After Horrific Ankle Injury
McLemore said. "Doctors said I dislocated my ankle, fractured my tibia, and will need surgery for some torn ligaments". They've beaten three top-25 opponents in No. 18 Kentucky, No. 20 Florida and now, the 10th-ranked Tigers.

United States college star Troy Terry collected his third assist with 6:30 remaining in the second period, his centering pass blasted home by Mark Arcobello for a 3-0 U.S. lead.

"Sorry to let him down on that on", Terry said, adding that Francouz's use of the glove on his right hand - uncommon in hockey - didn't let him use his usual move.

Donato then opened up the scoring at 21:36 of the first period, getting assists from Matt Gilroy and Terry to give the US a 1-0 lead.

"It was huge for our confidence going into tomorrow", Wisniewski said.

With his father Ted, a 1992 U.S. Olympian and the head men's hockey coach at Harvard looking on, Ryan Donato literally set the U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team on the path to victory in a do-or-die situation Tuesday.

The teams traded chances in the third period and O'Neill clanked a shot off the crossbar with just under three minutes left on an odd-man rush. Lots of power-play time coming for the U.S. They'll start with a 5-on-3 for two minutes. The Slovakian defenseman received a match penalty and a one-game suspension. "If we had played on our heels and played anxious, it would have affected our game", Donato said. Norway can go for a bigger upset if it knocks off the Russians in the quarterfinals.
