Gold For Canada

from the CP at TSN,

Led by their clutch captain, Canada brought back that golden feeling in Olympic women's hockey.

Marie-Philip Poulin's two goals spurred Canada to a 3-2 win over archrival United States in Thursday's final in Beijing.

The 30-year-old from Beauceville, Que., has scored in four consecutive Olympic finals for Canada with a total of seven goals in those games.

Poulin also scored the game-winner in Canada's last three wins in Olympic finals.

"She's not just a superstar with the puck, she's a superstar without the puck, and just a great leader for us," said her Canadian linemate Brianne Jenner.

"We're happy to follow Pou wherever she's going to take us.

“Canada is a hockey nation and hopefully we’ve given everyone a reason to celebrate back home."

The Canadians reclaimed gold after losing 3-2 in a shootout to the Americans four years ago in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Yeah for our side.  I’ve been following Women’s hockey and I knew that Canada had a Special team, They handled all the other teams with ease, with only the US putting up the competition, like usual.  I felt that after Canada beat the US in the prelim round, that the US played different in the rest of the prelim games.  It seemed they played down to their opponents waiting for Canada in the final.  The US got bad breaks on a couple of goals in the final, they were soft, and playing from behind on that big ice, well almost impossible behind 3 goals.
