Just 25 seconds later, Andrej Kudrna scored on a tip of a Tomas Surovy shot that slipped under Zapolski's right arm for a tying goal the 31-year-old goalie probably wants back. Coupled with Russia's 8-2 beatdown of Slovenia, the USA now finds itself atop Group B with four points ahead of its final game of group play Saturday against the Russians.
Ryan Donato, a 21-year-old Harvard University forward and son of a 1992 Olympian, scored two power-play goals in a 2-1 United States victory over Slovakia, following Wednesday's over-time loss to Slovenia. "They've been so good to us, and I've been trying to pick their brains and learn as much as I can". With the regulation win, the US vaults to the top of Group B with four points. Donato, Terry and American Hockey League scoring star Chris Bourque were all additions to the US after the pre-Olympic Deutschland Cup in November, during which the USA struggled to score, particularly against Slovakia goaltender Jan Laco.
Terry's dazzling vision and brilliant playmaking ability was front and center when he split two Slovakian defenders and left a drop pass for a cutting Donato to give the USA the lead against Slovenia. A couple of second-period power plays yielded offensive-zone time but not a goal, and a borderline goalie interference penalty on Boston University's Jordan Greenway made penalty killers work hard to keep it tied.
But it was Donato on the powerplay again who put the US back ahead for good in the third period.
