Woe, Canada: Germany stuns Canada from Olympics in semis

Woe, Canada: Germany stuns Canada from Olympics in semis

This time, the US bounced back from a 2-1 deficit in the third period to win in a shootout, capped by a jaw-dropping triple-deke by Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson for the go-ahead goal.

Then 20-year-old U.S. goalie Maddie Rooney, who was seven-months-old when the USA women last captured Olympic hockey gold in 1998 at Nagano, denied Meghan Agosta's attempted equalizer between Rooney's legs to give the Americans their long-sought gold.

The win was redemption for the Americans, who lost in overtime four years ago in Sochi.

Their opponent is quite the surprise: Germany will play in its first Olympic hockey final on Sunday hours before the games conclude.

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.

"I was told when the fourth shooter was going that I was going to be sixth if it came down to that", said Jocelyne, whose married last name is Lamoureux-Davidson. "We were going for gold".

Twenty years after winning the first Olympic gold medal in women's ice hockey in Nagano, Japan, the United States defeated its archnemesis, Canada, in a 3-2 shootout Thursday in the gold medal game at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in Korea.

"Hockey Canada is committed to working with its partners to create and deliver win-win marketing platforms to engage Canadians and bring them closer to the sport they love", said Mike Ross, chief business development officer, Hockey Canada.

She scored a goal against the Americans in this final but was stopped in the shootout.

Kalam said their return must be voluntary under the terms of a November agreement between the two countries. Residents had fled abandoning those houses after a military crackdown started in August 25 past year .

Slovakia coach Craig Ramsay said before the tournament that if the Germans get good goaltending they can do some damage.

The sisters have experienced the agony of defeat in Olympic gold-medal games in the past. "You have a 20-minute OT and the action in the third and overtime was just riveting". But it seems the shootout is a fixture in International Ice Hockey Federation rules.

Poulin, who earned the win in both of his appearances - one start, one relief - in Pyeongchang, has yet to allow a goal, stopping all 35 shots to date.

This season, Canada carried a five-game winning streak over the US into Thursday's final.

Patrick Hager's power-play goal at 12:31 of the second period wound up the game-winner as Germany stunned two-time defending gold medalist Canada 4-3 Friday night to set up a very unexpected gold medal game.

Others on social media let the move slide and said it was just her competitive spirit.

"We didn't know what to expect", Sturm said. The defensemen added, "you've worked that hard to change your game and be a lot better, you're producing overseas, everyone thinks you can come back and play, and you don't even get one game".

Canada was third in the medal standings heading into the final three days of competition with 24 - nine gold, seven silver and eight bronze.
