In what can only be described as a thriller, the Canadian women's ice hockey team needed overtime to beat the Americans and win its fourth straight gold medal.
With the goalie pulled, Canada's Marie-Philip Poulin scored the equalizer with 55 seconds remaining. And she added another one 8 minutes, 10 seconds into overtime to give her team a much-deserved and hard-fought gold medal. Canada scored two goals in the final five minutes of regulation to force the overtime.
The Canadians have been a powerhouse in women's hockey, but the real shock was how close they came to losing. The Americans were 55 seconds away from avenging their 2010 loss to Canada in the Vancouver Games. With Canada, one second can prove to be too much time.
After the game, devastated U.S. Coach Katey Stone said, via Kevin Allen of USA Today, "There really isn't anything to say. You can't take the sting away."
