Slovenia erases two-goal deficit, defeats United States in OT

Jan Mursak tied the game late in third period and tallied the game winner in overtime as Slovenia took down the United States in the opening game of the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics. Slovenia knotted the game at two with 1:37 remaining in the third period. With the goalie pulled and an extra attacker on the ice, Mursak was able to put home a rebound to force overtime. Blaz Gregorc and Miha Verlic assisted on the play. "Once we scored the first goal, we really started to fly on the ice," Mursak told NBC’s Pierre McGuire after the game.
