The U.S. women's hockey team has ended Canada's run of Olympic gold medals, but it took a shootout to do it.

Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored in the first extra round of the first shootout tiebreaker in Olympic women's hockey history to give the Americans the gold medal with a 3-2 victory over their arch-rivals. Lamoureux's twin sister, Monique Lamoureux-Morando extended the game by scoring with about six minutes left in regulation.

It was the second straight overtime in the gold medal game for these two teams, but the first shootout in Olympic women's hockey history.
