Posted In: News Date:Feb 22nd, 2018

Canada's reign as Olympic women's hockey champions ended in a 3-2 shootout loss to the United States at the Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored the shootout winner for the Americans, who earned their first gold since a 3-1 win over the Canadians at the inaugural Olympic women's hockey tournament in Nagano in 1998.

Her twin, Monique Lamoureux-Morando, tied the game in the third period after Canada scored twice in the second to rebound after Hilary Knight's opening goal.
