Sochi Olympics: Hockey Team USA Beats Russia

As reported by Sochi2014, the US ice hockey team gained victory over Russia in a suspenseful match after a longstanding rivalry. Final score was 3-2. 

T.J. Oshie scored the shootout winner as the United States defeated Russia.

Pavel Datsyuk had two goals in regulation for the Russians,  while Joe Pavelski and Cam Fowler scored goals for the Americans with both coming while Russian forward Alexander Radulov was sitting in the penalty box.

With the score tied 2-2 in the third period, the Russians appeared to score the winner with just under five minutes left, but referees Marcus Vinnerborg and Brad Meier  disallowed the goal apparently because the net had been knocked out of place.
