SOCHI, Russia - The U.S. hockey team scaled a mountain by defeating Russia in a shootout. Coach Dan Bylsma immediately was concerned his team might fall off a cliff emotionally the next day against a lesser foe, Olympic first-timer Slovenia. He need not have worried. Winger Phil Kessel, thriving on the wide ice surface, scored twice in the first 4 minutes 33 seconds and completed a hat trick midway through the second period - all assisted by Joe Pavelski - as the U.S. rolled past plucky but overwhelmed Slovenia, 5-1, Sunday at Shayba Arena in its round-robin finale.

They gave their best, but it wasn't good enough to beat goaltender Jonas Hiller for the first 35 shots and 42 minutes of their quarterfinal playoff game against Switzerland on Wednesday. So members of the U.S. Olympic hockey team put aside their annoyance and dug into a well of determination. "You're kind of mentally prepared for that type of game and when you're playing a goalie that good we're expecting that," Zach Parise said of Hiller, the Ducks' No. 1 goaltender and backbone of a Swiss team that had to win a qualifying-round shootout Tuesday to get this far. "But we kept reaching on the bench to not get frustrated, to not allow ourselves to fall asleep and to keep playing the way we were playing and hopefully one was going to go in for us."

Wearing uniforms that honored the Olympic champion 1960 U.S. hockey team and deploying a lineup that included the son of a player from the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" squad, the current U.S. Olympic team made some history of its own Sunday. In an exhilarating game that often went end to end without giving fans a moment's pause to do more than gasp, the Americans punished Canada goalie Martin Brodeur for his puck-handling mistakes and rode a two-goal, one-assist performance by Brian Rafalski to a 5-3 win at a jam-packed Canada Hockey Place.

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.

Jonathan Bernier didn't hide his enthusiasm when the Kings traded him to the Toronto Maple Leafs in June, telling The Times' Lisa Dillman that he was  "very happy to go play for a great club and great organization. " Goalies usually feel that way when they know a starting gig awaits them, but Bernier truly showed his dedication to the Maple Leafs on Sunday by becoming the first Toronto goalie since Felix Potvin (another former King) to engage in a fight. An all-skaters brawl broke out during an exhibition game between the Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres, in which Bernier squared up against Buffalo's Ryan Miller.

Ryan Miller watched the Turin Olympic hockey tournament from his couch with his family in East Lansing, Mich., when he paid attention at all. "I just wanted to take a mental break from hockey," he said, and who could blame him? Miller might have been the best American goaltender in the NHL during the 2005-06 season, but he had suffered an early-season thumb injury and didn't return to the Buffalo Sabres' lineup until the day Team USA was announced. That was too late for team officials to feel comfortable including him on the roster.

Here's his post on the U.S. team's 5-3 upset of Canada on Sunday: Hi again, everyone: That was a great game to be part of. To beat Canada in their own barn in front of their own fans was pretty special. It was a pretty quiet building at the end, it was almost eerie. We enjoyed it in the locker room afterward. It's a huge confidence boost for us. As far as the game, I thought we were outplayed for quite a while.
