The ladies had the gold medal in their hands with less than a minute remaining in regulation, but Marie-Philip Poulin scored with 55 seconds left to send the game into overtime. She scored the game winning goal about seven minutes into overtime. The Americans immediately broke down, wiped away tears with their hockey sweaters. Despite the loss, they stood with pride when each one received their silver medal.
