James Burns stashed this in Sports
Talk about a nailbiter for Canada...
Meghan Duggan and Alex Carpenter gave the U.S. a 2-0 lead, and it appeared a gold medal was within reach with less than four minutes remaining.
But Brianne Jenner began the rally with 3:26 remaining in regulation time. She made a nifty move to the slot and beat Vetter with a shot that went off U.S. defenceman Julie Chu.
“In the dressing [room] going into the third we were talking about boot camp and how this is the one that counts,” Jenner told CBC. “It’s our conditioning and heart and, you know, they played a great game. Kudos to them, but I’m so proud of these girls. This feels awesome.”
Poulin sent the game into overtime in the final minute as she was left alone in front of Vetter, who deflected the puck right to her Canadian counterpart. The 22-year-old made no mistake with her opportunity, beating Vetter with a quick shot.
