From AP news:

The U.S. women's hockey team is finally golden again.  Team USA ended a 20-year drought by dethroning four-time defending Olympic champion Canada 3-2 in a shootout to win the gold medal game.  Jocelyne Lamoureux  scored the deciding goal for the U.S., which hadn't won gold since the first women's tournament in 1998.
