Germany stun defending champions Canada to reach Olympic final

The bronze medal game is earlier in the day, with the puck dropping at 7:10 a.m. ET.

Yet there were the Germans, extending a 1-0 first period lead to 4-1 after the second.

Monique, whose married name is Lamoureux-Morando, was the Canadians' first big headache when she tied the game at 2-2 on a breakaway off a feed from Kelly Pannek with a little over six minutes remaining.

They started strongly and looked the more settled team in a very tight match which stood at 2-2 after four ends. He came up with a huge double takeout to score two in the eighth to bring his team within one, 6-5.

Apple reportedly releasing new AirPods 'as soon as this year'
It wouldn't surprise me to see Apple phase out its first-gen AirPods and replace it with the newer model with the upgraded chip. This would make the AirPods less prone to falling out when jogging for those who don't have AirPod-sized ears.

Before a round-robin victory on Monday, the US men had never defeated Canada in the Olympics. Once Germany upset top seed Sweden in the quarterfinal, it was mostly assumed Canada would advance to the gold medal game after ending the Cinderella run by Germany.

When the US beat Canada in its favorite ice sport, it made Shuster feel like anything was possible.

Her dream has come true and, better yet, it has gold overtones. "The greatest goal in US women's hockey history" just reset the rivalry. The 1998 women's team victory over Canada, in the inaugural Olympics for women's hockey, was also special, but this year's win seems more meaningful.

The tight game featured a thrilling shootout resulting in the United States winning its first Olympic gold in two decades in women's hockey.

Siesta is No. 2 on TripAdvisor's list of best United States beaches
This time, the topic is beaches in all their sun-kissed, wave-lapped glory - in the US and around the globe. Bournemouth beach in Dorset takes the top spot - and it also came fifth in Europe and 14 in the world.

It was a long, hard road to the Canadian Olympic hockey team for the 25-year-old, who is a member of Cote First Nation in Saskatchewan and grew up in Mallard, Man.

Shuster, George and teammates John Landsteiner and Matt Hamilton had a 2-4 record in pool play less than a week ago before reeling off three straight victories, including one against Canada — victor of the past three golds — to secure a berth in the medal round. The players were only playing for their teammates and their country, not money or sponsors.

But the momentum didn't shift completely, as Switzerland was able to get two more in the fifth. According to the IIHF, "there were 20,646 registered hockey players in Germany in 2017". But what a hockey game it was. There is no checking, but it is more aesthetically pleasing. All having to do with the lack of National Hockey League players in this year's tournament.

Overall, the game was a truly special event to witness, as the USA women showed the resilience and determination of true gold medalists.
