Both teams upped the intensity in the third period, and with minutes left in regulation, Canada added two goals, tying the game up 2-2.
Canada’s Marie-Philip Poulin scored in the third to tie the game and again in overtime – giving Canada the gold medal.”
2/5 players, one per team → marie-philip poulin (canadiennes de montréal)
“She’s a very skilled athlete, that go-to player that Canada has always looked to. I’m happy that she’s Canadian and she’s on my team. She’s the type of player where it doesn’t matter what type of thing is thrown at her, she’s gonna overcome it every time. And that’s the player that you want and that’s the leader that you want on your team. She’s the best of the best for a reason.” -Meghan Agosta (x)
