USA Women’s Hockey: “Goaa---Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaagggg!” How close to gold, and ending Canada’s 12-year reign Olympic women’s hockey reign, were the American women yesterday? Team USA led 2-0 with just over three minutes remaining when Canada pulled its goalie. An empty net shot from beyond the far blue line by the Americans literally hit the left post head on. An inch to the right and it’s 3-0. Instead, Canada tied the game with :54 to play and then won in overtime. Do you believe in miracles? Yeah, eh!
