US Women End Drought, Beat Canada For Gold In A Shootout

USA vs. Canada: Live score, updates from Olympic women's hockey gold-medal game

Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored the victor in the shootout as the United States beat Canada 3-2 on Thursday to win their first gold medal in women's Olympic ice hockey since 1998 and snap a streak of four consecutive golds for their arch-rivals.

Rookie American goalie Maddie Rooney stopped Meghan Agosta to end the game.

Kevin Poulin, who played Canada's final game of the preliminary round, a 4-0 win against South Korea, came into the game and was forced to make several key saves, including one on a cross-ice pass to a wide-open Finnish forward.

Monique Lamoureux-Morando upped the ante with a breakaway and made it a nailbiter as she tied it 2-2 for the American's less than seven minutes into the third. Haley Irwin leveled the contest at 1-1 before Marie-Philip Roulin gave the Canadians a 2-1 advantage.

With the win Team USA breaks a gold medal drought in women's olympic hockey that dates back to the 1998 Olympic Games Nagano, Japan.

It took 80 minutes of heart-stopping action followed by an intense shootout, but the Canadian women's hockey team ultimately fell short of a record-breaking fifth consecutive Olympic gold. "This is this team's first gold medal that they're going after as a unit".

"I just tried to fly as low as I could", Vonn told NBC when asked how she adjusted to the windy conditions at the Jeongseon Alpine Centre.

Trump also suggested ending gun-free school zones, opening more hospitals for the mentally ill and toughening background checks. The US president is being ridiculed on social media for his alleged inability to act humane without a cue card. "It's simple.

"Given, obviously, the anniversary here of the '98 team and just how integral she's been from a leadership standpoint in the lives of so many of our players, I wanted to have a quick touch point", Carey said.

Knight gave the US a 1-0 lead with 25.4 seconds left in the first, redirecting a shot from Sidney Morin through Szabados' pads to give the Americans a jolt of energy.

The Americans had dominated the women's game in non-Olympic years, winning the last four and eight of the last 10 world championships, including a 3-2 overtime victory over Canada last spring.

But Canada stormed back into the game in the second stanza.

For Noreau, it was redemption of sorts after his effort in the penalty-shot round in Canada's loss to the Czech Republic last Saturday hit the goal post, securing victory for the Czechs.

Needless to say, Canadian Twitter LOVED Moir's display of emotion. It was a great game of hockey. Four years later, armed with a new contract, the team will hopefully come home to the fanfare they deserve-whether or not they win gold. The men have done it, most recently when Sweden beat Canada in 1994. "We wanted gold but didn't get it".

"We're seeing more and more girls getting into it and we're seeing more girls playing in both the all-female programs and the mixed programs as well", Kobelka said.
