The United States has won their first gold medal in Olympic women’s hockey, beating out Canada in overtime during a thrilling game. The U.S. took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Hilary Knight in the closing seconds of the first period, but then Canada scored twice in the second. Canada remained ahead until American Monique Lamoureux scored with only 6:21 left to play in the final period. But then the game went into overtime, and then finally into a shootout. There were five rounds of a shootout, with no one scoring, and in the sixth round, Jocelyn Lamoureux scored with a a filthy deke and American keeper Maddie Rooney stopped Meghan Agosta to lock up the win. The U.S. have not won a gold medal in women’s hockey since the first tournament at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano.
