    Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson netted the decisive goal in the sudden-death shootout as the US women's ice hockey squad ended a 20-year drought, edging out arch-rivals Canada in a breathtaking Olympic final.

    After two and a half periods of tightly contested action, Monique Lamoureux-Morando knotted the score at 2-2 with just under seven minutes remaining in regulation.

    Even though Canada had numbers late in the overtime, they couldn't capitalize on the power play, and the extra-session went scoreless.
