Slovakia upsets OAR in back-and-forth thriller

A third-period goal from Peter Ceresnak propelled Slovakia past the Olympic Athletes from Russia 3-2, upsetting the gold-medal favorite to open the mens hockey tournament. An uncomfortable night in net for Vasili Koshechkin cost OAR midway through the third, when a delay of game gave Slovakia a power play. A smooth entry into the zone from Martin Bakos eventually set up an opportunity for Ceresnak at the point, and the right-handed forward bombed a slap shot that found a gap between Koshechkins glove and pad at 8:30 in the third.
