Sidney Crosby’s goal 7:40 into overtime gave Canada a 3-2 win over the United States in the championship game of the Olympic men’s hockey tournament.
After a Jonathan Toews goal gave Canada a 1-0 lead in the first period, Ducks forward Corey Perry put home the rebound of a Ryan Getzlaf shot at 7:13 of the second period to make it 2-0.
Roberto Luongo was fooled for the first time in
the second period on a deflection by Ryan Kesler that squirted between his
pads, and the 2-1 score held until the waning moments of the third period.
With Ryan Miller on the bench for an extra attacker, Zach Parise jammed home a rebound off Luongo’s pads in the crease, tying the game with 24 seconds left in regulation.
