Team USA Begins Quest For Gold In Sochi With Talented Core (Video)


The United States men’s Olympic hockey team begins its journey toward a gold medal Thursday with a preliminary-round matchup against Slovakia.

The Americans come into the 2014 Sochi Olympics highly motivated after being defeated by Canada in the gold medal game in overtime four years ago at the Vancouver Games. Team USA has never won an Olympic gold medal in men’s ice hockey outside of North America, but with a roster built on speed, skill and experience, the Americans are poised for a deep run in Sochi.
