The US men's hockey team is getting ready for the start of olympic play.

The first test for the US men will be against Slovakia on Thursday. The Americans are looking to top the podium after falling to Canada in the gold medal match in Vancouver. The head coach says the team gelling is the key for success.

"Yesterday getting here and just getting acclimatized and getting your wits about you. That's the first time you step on the ice and to think that you're going to come together as a team and build on that chemistry.

The US women are also setting their sights on playing arch-rival canada in the last preliminary round game on wednesday.
