Canada Wins Hockey Gold

Canada beat out Team USA Sunday, winning the hockey gold 3-2 in overtime before the closing ceremony of the Winter Games. Sidney Crosby scored the final goal seven minutes into the 20-minute sudden-death overtime, bringing Canada's medal count to a record-making 14. The U.S. trailed 2-0 in the second period, coming back with a tying goal with less than a minute left of play. Last week, the Canadians lost to the U.S. for the first time in 50 years, upsetting the country’s gold-medal expectations. The U.S. underdogs will take home the silver for the second time in three Olympics. President Barack Obama bet a case of beer to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper that the U.S. would win, and Press Secretary Robert Gibbs also made a bet with his Canadian counterpart. Since the U.S. lost, Gibbs will have to wear a Canadian hockey jersey for the first 15 minutes of an on-camera press briefing.
