Canadian women's hockey player immediately removes silver medal after loss

In most cases, parity and equal competitiveness make sports better.

The Americans' gold medal drought in women's hockey - finally - is over.

Members of the The United States women's hockey team celebrate after defeating Canada 3-2 in a shootout to win the gold medal game, February 22, 2018. But the Americans suffered a heartbreaker in Sochi in 2014, when Canada won the gold medal match in overtime.

After 20 minutes of scoreless four-on-four overtime, the gold-medal game went to extra shots.

The game began at 11:10 ET, Wednesday night. TSN's Gareth Wheeler put out this poll. Former Canadian women's captain and women's hockey legend Cassie Campbell weighed in. It is developing faster than the men's game did.

Finland remains winless now in eight games against the Americans at the Olympics.

It's hard to overstate the Canadians' success on the biggest stage. "On a good day, we have a chance against the USA and Canada".

Schuler was a member of the team that lost to the Americans in the 1998 Olympic final, when women's hockey made its debut.

The title wrested from them in a penalty-shot competition made silver feel sour.

Both teams expect a physical game.


Wednesday's game is set for 8 p.m. PST.

The Americans beat runner-up Sweden by.19 seconds down the stretch. It was a huge day for their program and country. Asked what he told his team, Chistyakov said: "You have to be more passionate, more committed to ice hockey in order not to cry next time".

In order to qualify for the Olympics, Japan needed to win the Division II World Championship.

The unified team has had little success on the ice, shipping 28 goals and scoring only twice in five defeats. With the win, they qualified for the Olympics and the rest is history. Both played for Switzerland.

In total the team teams have faced each other 18 times since the women's world hockey championship came into being in 1990 with Canada winning 10 of those matches. This would be an opportunity for the United States to bring forth their best and to beat the defending champions. They defeated the Candians in three of those finals.

Canada, with second Brent Laing, lead Ben Hebert, alternate Scott Pfeifer of St. Albert and coach Jim Dunn, started off the Olympics with four consecutive wins. This year that changed. In the very next games Canada got immediate revenge by up ending the States in the in the United States homeland. The Finns, ranked third in the world a year ago, will try to take home the bronze medal for the first time since 2010.

"The hockey gods were there, or something", Poulin said, in a pre-Olympic interview. The CWHL has seven teams throughout Canada, the northeast United States, and China.

The goalie saw more unwanted action midway through the period when she took a stick to the side and crumpled over in the crease, unable to get up until there was a whistle. There wasn't a dry eye among the Canadian women as they stood in line waiting for their medals.

As the contest remained locked at 2-2 after five rounds, it went to sudden-death with Lamoureux-Davidson drawing Shannon Szabados towards her before sliding the puck behind the Canadian goalie to put the USA ahead.
