The 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics hosted a tense hockey match between the U.S. and Russia on Saturday. 34 years after the "Miracle on Ice," the United States beat Russia 3 to 2 in overtime.

After three periods, the American and Russian teams each had 2 points -- a Russian goal by Fedor Tyutin in the final period was ruled invalid by officials. An overtime round ended with no scores, leading to a shootout between the two teams. Eight rounds of shots ended with a goal by T.J. Oshie of the St. Louis Blues.

With this win, the U.S. is 2-0 in men's hockey and will play its final preliminary round against Slovenia on Sunday. Russia has already beaten the Slovenian team in an earlier preliminary match.
