Team USA Beats Canada to End Women's Olympic Hockey Gold Medal Drought

Team USA Beats Canada to End Women's Olympic Hockey Gold Medal Drought

Hockey Canada and Samsung Canada partnered to embed a videographer with the national team as it played games in every corner of Alberta and across North America as part of its PyeongChang preparations, getting access to Team Canada everywhere - on the bus, during off-ice training, in the dressing room and on the ice.

"When you don't hear your anthem standing on that blueline it's a feeling you are never going to forget and you are going to use as motivation going forward", Canadian forward Natalie Spooner said. "You work so hard".

Larocque, who is clearly accustomed to gold after winning at the 2014 Winter Olympics, immediately removed her silver after it was placed around her neck.

"It's just hard", Larocque said.

Since Nagano, Canada and the United States have held a duopoly on Olympic women's ice hockey, contesting every final except one when Sweden crashed the party at the 2006 Turin Olympics to take silver.

The eighth end was the turning point in the US win over Canada, Team USA going up 4-2 from 2-2 after some misses by Canada. "I mean we were going for gold, we were chasing that gold medal".

It marked the second time the team from the Duluth Curling Club beat Canada in a week - and now will face Sweden in the gold-medal game at 12:30 a.m.

There were 10 returning players from that team in Pyeongchang, the pain as fresh as the day it occurred.

"We have to keep playing like this, just believe we can do it, keep making shots", Hamilton said.

The Americans went for broke on a run back in the fifth as they had a chance of scoring four, but despite a superb throw from Shuster, they had to settle for one and a 2-2 scoreline at the halfway point.

"I'm not sure they played an incredible game", Canada's Brent Laing said.
