Canadian player was so disappointed that she immediately removed her silver medal

With the King of Sweden and Ivanka Trump looking on - and bolstered by social media messages from actor Mr. T., National Football League quarterback Aaron Rodgers and speedskater Dan Jansen - Shuster skipped the Americans from a 2-4 record at the start of pool play to five wins in a row, starting with a victory over three-time defending Olympic champion Canada.

"Not everyone can take the pressure like that, and she took it like a champ", she said. "Sometimes it's one draw".

"It's unbelievable. A lot of us are here because of the '98 team".

"Right now, it's really tough, obviously".

Anything else - especially a second-place medal after a devastating loss to Canada's nemesis - just wouldn't do.

The U.S. women's hockey team won the gold medal game 3-2 in a shootout, snapping Canada's streak of four consecutive gold medals in that event.

Then came the final where USA goalkeeper Sarah Tueting stymied Canada's attack.

And you know what?

"I knew when that went in that Maddie was going to stop the next one", Lamoureux-Davidson said.

Team USA celebrates its gold medal win during the Women's Ice Hockey match against Canada.

Koe and Canada will have to settle for a shot at bronze.

"The shootout in the regular season brings the fans out of their seats, culminates the game, you can see some talent, (but it's) still not the best way to end it".

Shuster has become the de facto face of US curling, given that he's competed in the last four Winter Olympics, consecutively. The result was a steal of two for the Americans, and this game was basically over. "That's kind of what's frustrating. I think it's a life-altering game for us, to do what we did on this stage today".

For Jocelyne Larocque, the only thing that glitters is Olympic gold.

With a loud crowd of countrymen at the arena Thursday - hooting, hollering and holding signs with slogans such as "I Swept With Your Wife" - skip Kevin Koe and his team were tight from the start.

"That is how it works", Canada forward Blayre Turnbull said.

A reporter asked: Why does it hurt so much to say that?

Koe watches as he plays a stone. None of his family was going to miss it either, with his mom and dad, along with Jocelyne and Moniques's husbands, in Pyeonchang, South Korea, and other siblings and family members watching back home in the United States. "I have a hit and stay in the center of the ice to play for Olympic gold", he said. All the stuff actually that she did on that, that's stuff that we want to do too - come in on your off side and you have a couple different options there. "This is the new normal for Canada, and people need to get used to that". "They have been getting closer and closer and moving up the rankings in terms of the world curling tour. When it comes down to one game here and there, it happens". "It's fun for the fans, but maybe not in a gold medal game like that".

All five BC skaters played in each of Team U.S.A.'s five tournament games, and the Eagles' four defenseman-Pfalzer, Keller, Flanagan, and Barnes-logged major minutes in the gold medal game, particularly during the 4-on-4 overtime period.

Kennedy seconded that, with vigour. "We did not come here for a silver medal and everyone can imagine what losing feels like". "This isn't the end of the world".

"When at the end of all that, someone gives you the glittering symbol of your failure, what are you supposed to do?" I meant no disrespect - it has been an honour to represent my country and win a medal for Canada.
