The U.S. men's hockey team beat Russia at the Sochi Olympics in a 3-2 overtime shootout Saturday, various news sites reported. In one of the most anticipated contests of the Games, American T.J. Oshie scored four goals on six tries in eight rounds during the overtime shootout, securing the U.S.'s win, CNN said. The win proved controversial as a late Russian goal that would have won the game was disallowed when referees ruled the net was knocked off its moorings. The U.S. team earned a bye to the quarterfinals with the win.
