The Canadian women's hockey team defeated the Americans 2-0 to win gold in Vancouver on Thursday. Canada Coach Melody Davidson chose to go with a young phenom goalie, Shannon Szabados, instead of Canada's veteran Olympian. The choice paid off, as all 28 American shots were blocked. The victory gives Canada its third consecutive Olympic gold, despite a 40-second two-player advantage for the United States and another two-player advantage later on. The Canadians pulled through in front of a sellout crowd that included Canadian Prime Minster Stephen Harper.
