Canada Loses Gold Medal Game 3-2 In A Shootout At The PyeongChang Olympics

Monique Lamoureux Morando provided a highlight for the US women’s hockey team with her game-tying goal with 6:21 left in the Gold Medal game vs. Canada

"I'm glad I'm here and not there because I get very nervous", she told CBC on Wednesday. "And I hope this just grows the game for everybody, for girls, for women, for everybody", she said.

"I was up in a local bar and the whole place just erupted".

The turning point in the semifinal game came in the eighth end. The United States had not won an Olympic gold medal in women's hockey since 1998, while Canada had won four straight. In the three games, Team USA won the gold, silver and bronze, consecutively.

Ahead of the match, they had already played once in these Olympics.

And while it appeared the US team would once again flop after losing four of its first six games in round-robin play here.

Larocque's reaction was a far cry from the joy of Kiwi bronze medal-winning teenagers Nico Porteous and Zoi Sadowski-Synnott, who proudly celebrated their success in PyeongChang on Thursday.

Footage from the scene showed her holding the medal in her hand after removing it.

She wears No. 5, the same number as her all-time favorite hockey player, former Red Wing Nicklas Lidstrom.

"It make me want to play more and work harder and stuff. and maybe like one day that can be me", said Eliza Aitken, who is 13-years-old and a forward. "US!" when the win was sealed. After a fight for better pay they scored a contract that rivals that of the men's national team.

The Czech team targeted a medal here, and that remains the aim despite now facing the country that won the last two Olympic titles.

The gold medal match finished in dramatic style, with the United States of America squeezing past their great rivals Canada following a sudden death shoot-out.

"The U.S. has been waiting for something like this and needing a sort of spark", he said. "This is an outstanding team".

"As long as the shootout goes in your favour, I think you don't mind it so much", Heine said.
