USA Women’s Hockey Falls to Canada (3-2) in Gold Medal Game

Too little, too late. The United States women’s hockey team fell to Canada in the finale on Wednesday night (3-2) after trailing 3-0 in the first 30 minutes. Hilary Knight and Amanda Kessel brought the USA back, but there wasn’t enough time left to find the game-tying goal. Team USA outshot the Canadians 40-21 in the game, but Sarah Nurse and Marie-Philip Poulin (2) gave the team from the North an early 3-0 advantage. Overall, the Canadians dominated the tournament by going undefeated and outscoring opponents a combined 58-10. Team USA was the only squad to play the Canadians within five goals, and a silver medal is nothing to scoff at. It was Canada’s fifth gold medal all-time in women’s hockey.
