United States of America win ice hockey gold on penalties

Jocelyne Larocque #3 of Canada refuses to wear her silver medal after losing to the United States in the Women's Gold Medal Game on day thirteen of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

Canada won gold at the previous four Olympics, including victories over United States of America in the 2002, 2010 and 2014 finals.

"It is everything for our country", said USA coach Robb Stauber, who played goalie for the Los Angeles Kings and Buffalo Sabres in the National Hockey League. They won the gold medal at the World University Games on the same sheet of ice in Pinerolo, Italy, that hosted the Olympic bronze medal match.

The Czech Republic has the bronze from 2006 and gold from 1998 in Nagano.

So while a silver medal might be a nice consolation for a skier or skater, in this tournament all it means is that you lost the only game that matters. Also, a massive tip of the cap to Team Canada, who had one helluva team and almost won their fifth (!) straight gold.

After Team USA killed a penalty to keep the game scoreless at the end of overtime, the teams went to a shootout.

It's being touted as a Canadian Heritage Moment in the making - Scott Moir holding a beer and yelling at hockey referees in the gold medal Olympic game between Canada and the U.S. Although, there is one Canadian Olympian who is getting quite a bad rep after last night's game.

She added: "That is how it works, but in my honest opinion a game like that should never be decided by a shootout". She shot the puck into Rooney's pad, and it skittered toward the crease, inching toward the goal line.

"This victory is special and it's going to give us an even bigger platform to make a bigger difference". Canada's women, who had medaled at all five Olympics, were knocked out of the tournament before the playoff round. "It's come a long way and it's definitely moving forward", Patrick McGrath said.

The foursome embraced the "Team of Rejects" label, using it as motivation and also basking in the underdog status that made them a crowd favorite. And she said she knows what it's like to feel you've let an entire country down.

Yep, Jocelyne ripped that silver baby off her the moment she got it.

The Swiss rink leapt in the air to celebrate, before quickly remembering their manners to shake hands with their clearly deflated opponents - after which they regathered for a mass hug.

Annelise Coberger won New Zealand's only previous Winter Olympic medal - silver in women's alpine skiing in 1992. She accepted it [then] took it off. Everything is magnified. So in that sense, everything is magnified quite a bit, especially with the (salary) negotiations a year ago, I should say.
