Team USA women are solid GOLD!

Meghan Agosta was at the centre of a critical moment at the Olympics Thursday, when her final shot in a shootout for the gold medal failed to make it past the U.S. goalie. Canada had won 24 straight Olympic games to go along with four consecutive gold medals.

Canada had Shannon Szabados, 31, in goal for her third Olympic gold medal game, and her teammates made her job very easy by keeping the puck in front of Rooney for most of the first period by dictating play. Not only was the pain of the 2014 defeat hard to shake, but the players clashed with USA Hockey (the sport's governing body) for better pay and work conditions - improving a situation that observers found grossly inadequate for a team expected to represent their country on the world stage. The USA tied the game at 2-2 but came within inches of a monster score of four.

Charles Hamelin snagged his fifth lifetime Olympic medal with a bronze in the short track speed skating 5000m relay. They've done a tremendous job working to get themselves prepared, and it's an awesome achievement for them. "That's what it is, right?"

"I know she has ice in her veins", Stauber said.

Team USA can rely on the plays of Dani Cameranesi who delivered two goals against Finland in the semifinals. The game came down to a final shootout, where the Americans won, effectively ending their 20 year drought. The Olympics and gold medal games however just seemed to be different.

Along with the silver medal she earned, Canadian forward Melodie Daoust had another silver lining on Thursday.

The loss heaped more curling misery on Canada coming on the heels of the failure of Rachel Homan's women's team to reach the playoffs. Poulin was etched in the minds of the Americans when she netted both goals in the win over USA in 2010 as well as the game-tying and game-winning scores in the OT win in Sochi. He didn't worry about Rooney even after Haley Irwin and captain Marie-Philip Poulin scored in the second period to give Canada a 2-1 lead. She called Rooney unbelievable in net, so strong that they had complete trust in her. It was the first time in 20 years that the Americans took gold in that event.

Several members of Team Canada wept on the ice as they received their medals.
