Canada Wins Men’s Hockey Gold

Ending an afternoon of hockey that will go down as one of the greatest in the game, “Sid the Kid” Sidney Crosby scored at 7:40 of overtime to give Canada a 3-2 win and the gold medal, a shot from the left wing circle beating American goaltender Ryan Miller between the pads. It was an incredible end to a game that saw Canada lead 2-0 on goals by Jonathan Toews — a revelation for Canada — and Corey Perry.

The relentless Americans, the youngest team in the tournament, battled back to send it into overtime with just 24.4 seconds left in the third period, Zach Parise banging in a rebound behind Canadian goaltender Roberto Luongo.

With this, Team Canada wins 14 gold medals in total, the highest ever gold medal tally in the Winter Olympics ever. They also have 7 silver & 5 bronze for a total of 26 medals; third behind the US with 37 and Germany with 30.
