PHOTOS: Team USA's electric performance over Russia
Here comes Team USA
*cue the patriotic music*
And here comes Team Russia
Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky leads the home team onto the ice.
No score through the first period
But then Pavel Datsyuk gets one past Jonathan Quick to give Russia a 1-0 lead just before the halfway point in the game.
But Cam Fowler doesn't like that
So he ties things up seven minutes later.
Almost half way through the third period
Joe Pavelski also scores. Now USA's up 2-1.
But Datsyuk scored again
And the game was all tied up. Man, how happy was Alex Ovechkin.
So we go to overtime
No one scores. Which means it's time for everyone's *favorite... THE SHOOTOUT! (*assume sarcasm)
Oh hey, TJ Oshie scores
And because the rules are weird at the Olympics, he keeps shooting -- and scoring -- after the first three rounds of the shootout.
Oshie scores a second time
And a third time
At this point it was getting comical.
Hey, let's have Oshie shoot again!
Everyone laughed, but it worked.
And that's the story
of how Team USA beat Team Russia.
