Farmington's Megan Keller wins Olympic gold as Team USA defeats Canada

For the first time in two decades, the Canadian women's hockey team will have to settle for silver after losing 3-2 to the United States in a shootout Thursday.

It's being touted as a Canadian Heritage Moment in the making - Scott Moir holding a beer and yelling at hockey referees in the gold medal Olympic game between Canada and the U.S.

Trailing 2-1 in the third period, Monique Lamoureux-Morando converted a breakaway to knot the score 2-2 to force the 20-minute overtime period that preceded the prolonged shootout.

That all changed Thursday when the president offered congratulations to the USA women's hockey team after it knocked off Canada 3-2 in a shootout to win the gold medal in dramatic fashion. Following Lamoureux-Davidson's epic goal, U.S.A's Maddie Rooney stoned Meghan Agosta on the ensuing shot to secure the gold.

The PyeongChang Winter Olympics are on at the moment and a lot of things are happening like a Canadian hockey player, Jocelyne Larocque, taking off her silver medal mid-ceremony.

They lost both of those games to Canada, but last night the sisters and all of Team U.S.A. finally got their redemption.

"It's tough", said Garrett Wilson, a player from Ontario, Canada.

Edin has won just about everything in curling, skipping Sweden to world championship titles in 2013 and 2015 and a bronze at the Sochi Winter Games and now believes it is time to add Olympic gold to his resume.

When the Americans and Canadians play, it's essentially a heavyweight bout even if nobody drops the gloves.

She said she meant no disrespect but her emotions took over. "This is for Julie Chu [former U.S. team captain] and for all our families at home, the schools that we went to, everyone supporting us". "I think it's something that we're used to".

It wasn't the Miracle on Ice, exactly - but when the USA men's curling team squared up with their Canadian counterparts in the Olympic semifinal, few could have expected what happened next.

Almost 30 minutes after the match, an official from hockey's governing body approached her and told her - regardless of emotion - she had to put the medal back on.
