American Cam Fowler jammed in a rebound from the right side of the crease in front of Sergei Bobrovsky to pull the United States even with Russia late in the second period.

Pavel Datsyuk beat Jonathan Quick to the glove side almost halfway through the second period to give Russia a 1-0 lead.

Twenty minutes into USA-Russia, we have no score, but plenty of action. The Russians led in shots on goal, 13-10, in the period, but the U.S. had some of the better scoring chances, including one on a power play in the final few seconds of the period. Both goalies, Russia’s Sergei Bobrovski and USA’s Jonathan Quick, were stellar in the period, which was also marked by plenty of big hits and near-scuffles.

Russian star Alex Ovechkin destroyed USA defenseman Brooks Orpik on a check into the boards late in the period, and Orpik later skated over to Ovechkin as the latter was leaving the ice to say a few choice words — which Ovechkin quickly returned.

The Americans will have another 1:24 on the power play when the  second period begins.
