Spoiler Alert - Men's Olympic Hockey Results

That's where the similarities end. The Americans will have to play in a qualification playoff on Tuesday.

The Americans, who play the Russians on Saturday, took a 1-0 lead 17:44 into the game on a goal by KHL Helsinki Jokerit forward Brian O'Neill, who assisted on Greenway's goal 12:57 into the second period for a 2-0 lead. Granato wondered if 21 players dressing in their first Olympic game combined with the hype and long day before a late start took a toll on his team, which hadn't played together much.

"After the last game in Sochi, I think you guys are still showing the highlights of Oshie scoring those shootouts, right?"

"I still have some gas left in my tank, so I hope I score some more", Kovalchuk said. Coach Tony Granato pointed out that Slovenia probably should have been the more exhausted team from playing so much in its defensive zone, but there was none of that from a group that has only one player - Mursak - with National Hockey League experience.

Kovalchuk blasted a shot past US goaltender Ryan Zapolski from the right faceoff circle with 0.2sec remaining in the second period, boosting the Russian lead to 3-0.

Zapolski allowed three goals on 25 shots, including the first goal by Jan Urbas.

Neither team capitalized on chances in the second period.

"We had a couple of really good looks, myself included", Gionta said.

This night lacked the tense political subtext of the Cold War from the teams' 1980 meeting and the pomp and circumstance of Russian President Vladimir Putin attending and the pressure on the home team in Sochi in 2014, but it had the same kind of in-arena atmosphere.

USA and Russian fans filled Gangneung Hockey Centre and went back and forth with "U-S-A" and the "ROSS-I-YA" chants that made up the background noise at the Olympics four years ago.

Game notes: US defenseman Will Borgen was a healthy scratch for the third consecutive game.

Prokhorkin, who was drafted by the NHL's Los Angeles Kings but has never played there, opened the scoring in the first period for the Russians, redirecting a hard feed from Sergei Mozyakin as he was crossing in front of the US goal.

Long before that, the US started letting the game slip away with mistakes all over the ice. "This time we played the whole 60".

The preparation and the knowledge were not enough to fend off the fatigue as the United States blew a two-goal lead and lost a 3-2 stunner in overtime Wednesday night in the Olympic opener for both teams.

Peter Olvecky first beat Russian goalie Vasily Koshechkin with a wrist shot.

"We played well", Kovalchuk said. They sure didn't think the game was as lopsided as the score.

Less than one minute later, Ceresnak scored on the power play to put the Slovaks ahead for the first time. "I was really happy with the effort and the confidence that we gained in knowing that we could play with them. We just didn't get the results".

On this stage, the result is all that matters.

Slovenia added another by upsetting the US and gets the Russians next.

NOTES: Defensemen Matt Gilroy and Noah Welch wore the "As" as alternate captains.
