This Is How Close The U.S. Was To Gold

Canada came back from a 2-0 deficit with two scores in 3:26, including Marie-Philip Poulin's equalizer with 55 seconds remaining, to send the gold medal game to overtime. It wouldn't have mattered if Canada's greatest hero—an inanimate goalpost—didn't come up with this huge save.


(Pay no attention to the linesman throwing a pick.)

Time for overtime. If Canada takes this, that goalpost gets honored on Parliament Hill.

Update: Canada wins.
