YAY! :) This was the only event I've watched in full so far at the Olympics and it was SOOOOOOOOO WORTH IT!
Went to overtime and then they won in the shootout.
Congrats to our ladies! That was fun to watch.
Yippy Kai ah, my mom couldn’t stay up went to bed. She wanted to play but they would even let girls play for fun in her day.
Canadian goalie stood on her damn head in OT, what a shootout!
As soon as the entire game was being played in front of the Canadian net from about the middle of the second period onwards, I was saying you could stick a fork in Team Canada, it was done.
Loser Keeps Bieber!
Glad I stayed up - that was an amazing shootout goal to win it! And a great save for the US.
USA! USA! USA! USA!
That was SO exciting! So happy for them!
I hate shootouts in any sport. Why can’t they keep playing ?
So that’s why the Canuck chicks look so sad. ;)
Seriously though, feel bad for whoever had to to lose that game.
Pete, you awake?
If I was a smoker I would have smokes two packs watching the last hour of that game. AMAZING.
In U.S. High school boy’s hockey (and probably the NHL) they go into sudden death overtime. I know I’ve seen games go into double OT, but they might draw a limit on it and go to a shoot-out in the third or something. I don’t know. Didn’t years ago the US won over the USSR in OT? So I wonder if the shoot-out is a women’s thing.
Regardless - way to go ladies!
Saw it, they played their hearts out! Just incredible!
Stayed up late & glad I did - fantastic, exciting game!
So happy for the USA team!!
One of the Canadian players took off her silver medal as soon as she received it - fine, b!tch, give it back! Or I hear you can sell it for scrap $300 USD.
Oh wow! Must be heat of the moment. Maybe she will cool off by tomorrow. :( — dont know how friendly or unfriendly the rivalry is. Freeper on another thread thinks not.
I don’t know. What is the limit of overtime periods in NHL?
Except those are the kind of games when you don’t score after all those chances one mistake by you and the other team scores and the air is completely out of your team. I’m a Ranger fan so I’ve seen enough of those games over the years. Not this season when they’re just mailing it in, but in the past. Awesome win for the women. 20 year old Maddie the goalie was phenomenal. The stick save she made in OT was one for the ages. Way to go USA.
OMG! Another shootout? Argh! We've just *got* to reign in the NRA, and elect 100% Dems to all public offices. The Children of America demand it! Widows and orphans too.
