Marie-Philip Poulin scored twice for the second straight Olympic gold medal game and Canada beat the United States 3-2 in overtime on Thursday for its fourth consecutive title.
The puck skittered the length of the ice on its way toward the empty Canadian net before clanging off the post and stopping in front of the crease.
A two-goal lead blown in the final four minutes. A long shot that clanged off the post of an empty net. Two perplexing penalties in overtime, setting up a golden goal for Canada.
The puck bounced off Kelli Stack's chest, and before it could flutter back to the ice she bunted it out of the air, past Finland goalie Noora Raty and into the net.
Hilary Knight scored 53 seconds into the game and assisted on Alex Carpenter's second-period goal as the United States turned back third-seeded Finland 3-1 to open the women's hockey tournament Saturday at the Sochi Olympics.
Kelly Gunther wasn't sure she would ever skate again after a serious ankle injury four years ago. Now she is one of three Ohioans competing in the upcoming Olympics in Russia.
"To let them come back in the gold-medal game at the Olympics is the worst feeling in the world," said Kelli Stack, who nearly became an improbable hero with a long clearing attempt that hit the right post of an empty net late in regulation.
"If it would have been an inch to the right, it would have went in, and we would have won the gold medal," said Stack, shaking her head. "When pucks don't bounce your way, you've just got to know that it wasn't meant to be."
