Neither team found the net in overtime as the contest went to a shootout, with the US drawing first blood when Gigi Marvin scored on the first shot of the tiebreaker. It's what we've been dreaming about since we were little girls.
What the men's Olympic tournament has lacked in elite game play, it's made up for it with unpredictability.
The Canadians came out with far more goal in the second period and Koskinen had to make an early pad save to deny an Andrew Ebbett shot. Melodie Daoust put Canada ahead on the fourth round of shots but Amanda Kessel pulled the United States level, setting the stage for the dramatic finish. And when Morin lost the puck, Melodie Daoust grabbed it and passed to Meghan Agosta who hit Poulin for the wrister into the left side of the net at 6:55 for a 2-1 lead. "And we have lots of confidence in him, anyway, he's been great for us".
"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. They play elsewhere, but there is only really this.
"I couldn't be prouder of those guys and to see their effort it makes you emotional and what they have done for Korean hockey is just fantastic". Savolainen returned in the second period.

Canada tried to hold on as the United States pressed for an equalizer throughout a fast-paced third period, and it paid off as Monique Lamoureux-Morando tied the game at 2-2 with just over six minutes left in the third period. The Canadians won four games in December and they won the pool play game against the Americans at the Olympics 2-1. Instead, they've focused on the old cliche of one day, one practice, one shift on the ice at a time.
O'Brien scored a combined 113.25 points over her three runs in the sport's Olympic debut.
The Americans' gold medal drought in women's hockey - finally - is over.
"Guys were literally jumping in front of pucks with their face", Roy said. "We were diving everywhere, and yeah, they would have taken one in the teeth for sure". Twenty years earlier, his father was eliminated in playing for gold in the famous Team Canada shootout defeat to Dominik Hasek and the Czechs at the Nagano Olympics. Few teams at the tournament outside of Russian Federation, with stars such as Pavel Datsyuk and Ilya Kovalchuk, can boast an offence capable of playing wide-open hockey. "Pretty disappointed I couldn't put on my best but that's kind of what I had today and that's how it goes". And we know that, we embrace that.
