Marie-Philip Poulinโ€™s golden moment!

As expected, Canada and U.S. women fought for hockey Gold. It was an exciting end to end battle for 3+ periods. The U.S. looked to be in line to win up 2 in the third with less than 5m to playโ€ฆ but Canada kept driving tieing the game late and forcing overtime. (Holy sh*t that puck hitting the postโ€ฆ what a story that would have beenโ€ฆ) After a breakaway (that should have been a penalty shot) Canada was awarded a powerplay, a 4 on 3. Marie-Philip Poulin scored to win Gold for Canada!

WOO!

Las Vegas favoured the U.S., they scored a ton of goals and looked to have momentum going into their semifinal game against Canada today. Canada clearly didnโ€™t get that memo. Canada held the edge in puck possession, chances and won 1-0โ€ฆ Shutting out the U.S.! Canada now faces Sweden Sunday morning for gold and Finland plays the U.S. for bronze. WOO! GO Canada!
