Hockey Gold For Team USA In The Paralympic Games

GANGNEUNG, South Korea – Declan Farmer (Tampa, Fla.) scored the equalizer with just 37.8 seconds to play in the third period and tallied his second of the game 3:30 into overtime as the 2018 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team topped Canada, 2-1, here today to win an unprecedented third consecutive gold medal at the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games.

“This was a tremendous game to have been a part of and something this group will remember forever,” said Guy Gosselin, head coach of the 2018 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team. "It was an absolute honor to coach this team and help them finish the mission Coach Sauer started, and that was to ultimately win this Paralympic gold medal."

The victory marks the first time any nation has won three-straight Paralympic gold medals in sled hockey after the United States won gold at both the 2010 and 2014 Paralympic Winter Games. In six Paralympic Winter Games appearances in sled hockey, the United States has now won four gold medals (2002, 2010, 2014, 2018) and one bronze medal (2006).

It Matters Canada

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

These are the games you never forget.

It doesn’t matter who you are and where you play. It doesn’t matter that nobody knows your name or your background. It doesn’t matter that this wasn’t the Team Canada we wanted or you wanted on the ice.

It matters that they lost, to Germany, fricking Germany, who didn’t qualify for the last Olympics, and lost the opportunity to play for gold in hockey, not being defeated. Beating themselves.

It matters that they lost and these players we’ve barely come to know will live with this undisciplined defeat, this game lacking direction and common hockey sense, and they will carry this 4-3 loss around with them, probably for the rest of their lives.
