    Saulnier has a lower body injury and that is why she is not on Jenner and Johnston's line. Wakefield is taking her place and she is sloppy.
    Sorry, my mistake. Thanks for the correction. Saulnier has a foot injury I believe.

    Is that some kind of record, not having a Lamorwho in the penalty box until the second period?

    Carpenter may have been useful on that anemic power play!

    The refs continue to be brutal and have let a lot go, and they've gotten in the way of the puck or the players at least 4 times that I've seen. Not good in a Gold medal game.

    Entirely too much ****ing around with the puck by Canada in the middle of the period.

    It's a disgrace that this is going to be settled by a shootout.

    I'm not at all convinced that four-on-four necessarily means a better chance at a goal. It seems to me that all it does is make it easier for the goalie to see the puck; less chance of screens and redirects, etc. They played four 20-minute periods tonight, and the only one during which there was no goal was the OT.

    I'm kinda in shock right now but...man, was the US good in the 4 on 4 overtime.

    Happy for USA hockey...Lots of hard work pays off.

    Re: Olympic women's hockey

    many many things can be pointed out to team canada's inevitable loss. Spooner in shootout (w.t.f. moment from Schuler), Jenner's surprisingly failed signature backhand shootout attempt, but most of all.... that brutal line change in the 3rd giving lamoureux the breakaway to score. This happened in the last game! They did not learn from this.

    Lacasse in shootout > Szabados in shootout. Lacasse looks angry and devastated.

    team canada women's GM should be in consideration for being fired now.

    Hate that it had to be in a shootout, but wow was that fun to watch, and based on how they played in OT, the US certainly deserved to win.

    congrats to team USA!

    Laura Schuler must now hear the USA anthem twice, 20 years after her own gold medal loss.

    will this result now do away with the all-female alumni coaching staff that will be purportedly implemented by team canada women at the 2022 Beijing Olympics? Possibly.

    Amen. After all the training, the hard work, the mental preparation...in the end it was all worth it a thousand times over.

    And looking back a month or two ago, when people were questioning Rob Stauber's qualifications to be head coach, well he certainly proved the naysayers wrong. Maybe his best decision was to go with the inexperienced youngster Maddie Rooney in goal. Great call!

    Huge congrats to all the players, and the coaching staff.

    My only posts to my relatives and friends before the game were that Rob keep Maddie in goal and the gals play free and loose. They started smiling on the bench sometime in the second period, and things got a lot better. Something to be learned there, maybe.

    I will maintain that the team won in spite of Stauber, not because of him. Starting Rooney was a good call. Most of everything else he did was bordering on sabotage.

    Re: Olympic women's hockey

    Great game. Congratulations to the OAS (Olympic Athletes of Stauber...that was a good one).

    Re: some of the preceding posts

    Kind of agree about the 4 on 4 in OT. Seemed like most of the period was consumed by one team or the other skating back into their end to retrieve the puck.

    If Chaffron was implying that Spooner was a bad choice as a shooter in the shoot out I'd have to strongly disagree. She's got one of the best wrist shots in women's hockey and she's normally deadly on breakaway's. In fact as the game was starting I was hoping that she would get one (a breakaway) sometime during the game. In her last two years for OSU while playing vs UMD she had 5 breakaways on Harss. Result: Spooner 5 - Harss 0. She's got moves. She just lost control of the puck as she got close to Rooney. (But something didn't look right with her tonight as I mentioned earlier...looked exhausted early in the game).

    Every four years there are always these conversations about who is now a hero and who should be fired. The last Olympic hockey game Canada lost was the Gold Medal Game in Nagano, Japan (Miller and Shuler...coincidence?) They've won the last 20 in a row until tonight. To think that any coach is a hero or a bum as the result of a game that came down to the last shot in a shoot out that might be determined by a bounce of the puck or having it roll off your stick is ridiculous. Different situation if you win or lose by a decent margin but that's not what happens between these two teams. Neither of these coaches is a bum or a hero and that wouldn't change if Canada had won. But many will persist in perceiving it that way.

    Noticed Lacquette not getting shifts in the 3rd period or in OT until late. She doesn't have the speed required at this level. Gigantic blunder by her all alone skating back into Canada's end in the 2nd with lots of time to defend against one skater in the middle of the ice and instead of taking away time and space by getting the angle on her which was easily done in this instance and riding the US player out of the slot and neutralizing the play she did the opposite. Very fortunate it didn't result in a goal.

    Didn't recall hearing Duggan's name in OT or in the 3rd for that matter...was that just me or was she not getting many shifts?

    Fast impressed me during this tournament.

    Canada looked gassed in OT and the US didn't.

    Didn't like J-Rock removing her medal as soon as it was placed around her neck...not good optics.

    Liked both jerseys...a lot.

    All of these payers deserve all our respect for their sacrifices and dedication while they put their lives on hold for years...what they can do out there with their skill level and their speed for an hour at a time under crushing pressure like this is hard to believe.

    Liked how Rooney was laughing or smiling during the shoot out. Nervous reaction to the enormous pressure or just having fun and enjoying the moment? Looked like the latter to me.

    Looking forward to having her back in a 'Dog jersey in October. Watch out WCHA.
