Team USA Inches Away From Icing Women's Hockey Gold Medal Game, Instead Canada Forces Overtime

By Mike Cardillo

Team USA led Canada 2-1 late in the third period of the women’s gold medal game in Sochi. The Americans nearly took a 3-1 lead after Canada pulled its goalie, sending a deep shot that clanked off the post.

In a blink of an eye Marie-Philip Poulin scored to tie the game with 56 seconds remaining, sending it into overtime.

Inches … incredible.
