PyeongChang-2018

Hockey gold to USA

Canada's drive-for-five came up just short.

The United States ended Canada's golden run in women's Olympic hockey with a 3-2 shootout win in PyeongChang.

Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored the winning goal in the sixth round of the shootout.

Rookie American goalie Maddie Rooney stopped Meghan Agosta to end the game.

The win was redemption for the Americans, who lost in overtime four years ago in Sochi.

Hilary Knight and Monique Lamoureux-Morando scored in regulation for the Americans.

Marie-Philip Poulin and Haley Irwin replied for Canada.

Knight scored on a breakaway in the third period, as the Americans battled back from a 2-1 deficit.

Canada had won the four straight golds, losing only in 1998 when women's hockey made its Olympic debut.

This was the first time the women's gold medal has been decided in a shootout.
