U.S. women’s hockey takes home Olympic silver after losing to rival team Canada
Canada jumped to an early lead and fended off a furious comeback attempt as the two teams met yet again in a final at the Olympics.
Jumping to an early lead that they never lost, Canada’s women's hockey team defeated the U.S. 3-2 for the gold medal at the Beijing Games on Thursday.
Canada scored three unanswered goals that the U.S. was not able to overcome, despite a furious final effort, and got revenge for the defeat handed to them by the Americans four years ago.
The U.S. women will go home with the silver after the loss.
“It was a group effort,” Poulin said after the game.
“It was line after line, put pressure, and we put it in when it was the right time.”
The rivalry between the U.S. and Canada is one of the biggest of the Winter Olympics.
