Canada's Jocelyne Larocque called out for silver medal reaction

As USA gets bounced, it's up to Canada to shield Gary Bettman from further criticism over NHL Olympics decision

They defeated Canada 3-2 after shootouts to take home the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics [VIDEO] #Gold Medal for women's hockey. She was on top of her game, and it didn't seem to matter that it was a shootout against the powerhouse Canadians.

The last time Team USA claimed gold in hockey also happened to be the first year for women's ice hockey in the Olympics.

While most of the country was sleeping Thursday morning, #Team USA was sending a resounding message that will undoubtedly be the news story of the day.

The Americans were first to get on the board. Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored the game-winner in a shootout with a dramatic, circus shot of a goal in the sixth round of shots to put the US ahead.

Hillary Knight opened the scoring, giving the USA a 1-0 goal late in the first period. "I was taking so long my feet were pretty cold".

Canada's Marie-Philip Poulin scored in the second period.

Goalie Nicole Hensley is regarded by many as the best female goaltender in the United States.

Canada defeated Russian Federation 5-0 in Pyeongchang Monday to advance to Thursday's gold-medal game against the Americans, who downed Finland 5-0 earlier in the day.

The Canadians, who had pushed the Americans around for much of the game and taken penalties for it, wept on the ice as they accepted their silver medals.

And yes, the Americans understand the United States-Canada playing for gold is what everyone expects to see.

She continued, "I know my worth is not found in what I can achieve in this game.

It's spectacular to see our team come out and perform that well because there was a lot of pressure", said USA coach Robb Stauber. When play resumed without a penalty, some fans booed. "The last game was really physical and this one will go another notch, it's going to be exciting". The United States would stir up a bit of offense, but were always coming up just one stick short of gathering the loose puck and turning the opportunity into a goal. We had a couple literally inches away from just putting some in, so we've got to find a way to just get those in the net.

It was 2-2 after three periods and 2-2 through five shooters in the tie-breaker.

The U.S. went into the gold medal rematch hoping to avenge its heartbreaking 3-2 loss in overtime to Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, and was able to do just that. These two teams regularly face off in the biggest of competitions, and while the rest of the world is slowly catching up in terms of talent, there's no doubt that women's hockey still goes through North America. Monique is left-handed and Jocelyne is right-handed, but they are both right-handed on the ice. It was Jocelyne Lamoureux who would finally set the Americans ahead, with a phenomenal deke that left plenty of net open.

Maddie Rooney couldn't stop smiling.
