Canada Wins Gold with 3-2 Overtime Win Over USA in Men's Hockey
Canada has won a gold medal with a 3-2 overtime win over the USA in Men's Olympic Hockey. Sidney Crosby scored the game winner for Team Canada.
After the USA tied up the game with Zach Parise goal with 24 seconds left, the game was forced to overtime. Sidney Crosby, Canada's captain, had been quiet all game long until he won gold for Canada on one shot in overtime.
The gold medal means Canada has broken the Olympic gold medal record in an Olympic Games with 14.
The buzz for this game was incredible as the friendly neighbours renew their rivalry for the second time of this Olympics tournament. Team USA walked away with a 5-3 win over the Canadians when they met early on in the tournament, a shocking win for a young team with few expectations.
Team Canada was questioned after the loss, with many saying the Canadians were a disappointment for Vancouver 2010. After 4 consecutive wins and a gold medal, the Canadians put those questions to rest.
