posted: 02/20/2018 4:30 a.m. Discuss

Ryan Donato scored two goals, Troy Terry had three assists and the United States beat Slovakia 5-1 in the qualification round early today to advance to face the Czech Republic in the Olympic quarterfinals. College kids again led the way for the U.S., which scored more against Slovakia than it did in all three preliminary-round games. James Wisniewski, Mark Arcobello and Garrett Roe also scored for the Americans, who took advantage of a 5-on-3 power play for hits on Donato and goaltender Ryan Zapolski. Slovakia goaltender Jan Laco allowed five goals on 33 shots, and Peter Ceresnak scored a power-play goal for Slovakia, which became the first team eliminated from the men’s side.

posted: 02/19/2018 4:30 a.m. Discuss

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir were leading the ice dance competition Monday at the Pyeongchang Olympics after a record-breaking short program set to the rock music of the Rolling Stones, the Eagles and Santana. The Canadian duo scored 83.67 points to lead their training partners and biggest rivals, Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron, by more than a point heading into Tuesday’s free dance. The French couple appeared a bit thrown off by Papadakis’s costume, which came unhooked at the neck during their program. They held things together despite the wardrobe malfunction and scored 81.93 points, and now will rely on their stronger free dance Tuesday to track down the leaders. Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue of the U.S. are third, two-hundredths of a point ahead of their compatriots, Alex and Maia Shibutani. Fellow Americans Madison Chock and Evan Bates are seventh.
