Team Canada ceded a hard-fought gold medal women’s ice hockey game to the Americans but still added three medals to its total on Day 13 of the PyeongChang Games.
While you were sleeping:
It was a game that gripped a nation as Team Canada first lagged behind, then pushed ahead but ultimately fell in the shootout to Team USA in women’s ice hockey.
The loss put an end to 24-game winning streak for the Canadians, as well as their bid to win five consecutive Olympic gold medals.
“This team really gave their heart out tonight. It’s my second family and I’m so proud of all of them,” said team captain Marie-Philip Poulin.
“This team was very special. We had a great group of veterans. The young ones as well, they were so mature throughout the year and they showed it at the Olympics.”
What a game!!! It wasn’t #TeamCanada’s night but we are incredibly proud of @MeghanAgosta & all of the players on the team. That was some impressive hockey ladies! Congratulations to #TeamUSA on their gold medal win.
