SOCHI, Russia -- The International Ice Hockey Federation has issued a statement clarifying the ruling on Russia's disallowed goal in the third period of a preliminary-round game against the U.S. on Saturday. Russian officials and players disputed the call on the play, which would have given Russia a 3-2 lead late in the third period. The game went to a shootout, which was won by the U.S. in eight rounds. According to the IIHF, the net had been knocked off its moorings before Fyodor Tyutin's shot went into the net and the play was properly reviewed.

SOCHI, Russia - T.J. Oshie had only one concern when Coach Dan Bylsma called his name six times during the shootout that would settle Team USA's preliminary-round game against Russia. "I was just thinking of something else I could do to try to keep them guessing," said Oshie, whose shootout success with the NHL's St. Louis Blues helped him win an Olympic berth. "I had to go back to the same move a couple times, but I was glad it ended when it did. I was running out of moves there.

SOCHI, Russia - In a rare instance of a game exceeding its advance billing, Team USA and Team Russia battled hard and evenly through 65 deliciously tense minutes before T.J. Oshie scored the deciding shootout tally in the eighth round of the tiebreaking procedure to give the U.S. a 3-2 victory at the Bolshoy Ice Dome. Unlike NHL rules, international rules permit shooters to take multiple shots after the first three rounds of the shootout. Oshie had shot six times before giving the U.S. the win. U.S. goalie Jonathan Quick of the Kings stopped 29 shots in regulation and overtime.

SOCHI, Russia -- Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick, who made 22 saves against Slovakia to support Team USA's Olympic-tournament-opening victory on Thursday, will start again when the U.S. faces Russia on Saturday in a much-anticipated game at the Bolshoy Ice Dome. Quick, a man of many saves and few words, took the news from Coach Dan Bylsma with his typical calmness. “Everyone prepares to play and everybody prepares to help the team win games,” he said after Team USA practiced Friday.

SOCHI, Russia - Twenty years ago, in Slovakia's first Winter Olympics appearance as an independent nation, Peter Stastny was given the honor of carrying the country's flag into the opening ceremony of the Lillehammer Games. In an odd twist of hockey fate, Stastny's American-raised son, Paul, played against his father's homeland Thursday and confirmed the quality of his own international hockey credentials. Paul Stastny contributed two of six goals scored by Team USA during a frantic second period as the Americans went on to a 7-1 rout of Slovakia at Shayba Arena in both teams' Olympic tournament opener.

Best Bets for Thursday at the 2014 Sochi Olympics: MEN'S HOCKEY The U.S. opens pool play with a game against Slovakia. Canada and Russia are the expected gold-medal finalists, but it wouldn't surprise if the U.S. was around at the end. The thing about Olympic hockey is you get to see lines such as Patrick Kane, Dustin Brown and Phil Kessel. Jonathan Quick will be in goal. WOMEN'S SPEEDSKATING The U.S. could win gold if Heather Richardson can shake off her lackluster performance in the 500 meters and win the 1,000 meters.

SOCHI, Russia - Canada has an unequaled group of centers. Sweden, though depleted up front by injuries, has fine goaltending. Finland boasts an unshakable team ethic that clicks in whenever its players reunite. And Russia, blessed with enormous skill, bears the equally large burden of living up to a glorious history that may never be duplicated. What Team USA will bring to the Olympic hockey tournament when it faces Slovakia at Shayba Arena on Thursday is more difficult to summarize.

The Kings honored their six Olympians on Thursday, inviting them to take one more trip around the Staples Center ice before leaving for Sochi and next week's tournament. But all six had to put in a little extra work on their way out the door. And that led to a nice parting gift, with defenseman Robyn Regehr scoring in overtime to end a four-game losing streak and give the Kings a 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. Regehr's goal, on a rising shot from just off the left circle at 2 minutes 33 seconds, also gave the Kings their fourth win in six overtime periods this season.
