Lifelong hockey fans savor the moments that games like USA-Canada provide.
In a game for the ages, it was Sidney Crosby – the leader of Canada’s Generation Next – who scored the golden goal 7:40 into overtime, leading Canada’s men’s Olympic hockey team to a thrill-a-minute 3-2 victory over their arch rivals from the United States.
The 2010 winter games in Vancouver should be considered a success for the host country, Canada. The Mens Hockey gold was Canada’s 14th, breaking the record for most gold medals at a Winter Olympics. The Soviet Union, in 1976, and Norway, in 2002, each won 13.
