So happy for the ladies. It felt in the second half of extra time that Sweden really really didn't want the match to reach pens and Canada were just trying to hold out for them. A lot of less than confident walk-ups from the Swedes.

Exactly what I loved. So in the moment. Loved her standing over the ball when the Swedes needed to pick it up for their shot. 


All the penalty takers looked extremely nervous. That's not meant to be a criticism of others, just meant to highlight how impressive she was in not freezing up. 


Did she guess right on every single penalty?

Canada won a gold medal by only winning twice (matches decided in penalties technically aren't recorded as wins), scoring six goals in six matches and not scoring once from open play in the entire knockout stage. That's as hilarious as it is impressive.


Certainly not complaining, though. They defended brilliantly all tournament.

Great goaltending, great defensive play, and timely scoring.


The blueprint for championship teams.


Just wanted to get the narrative that Canada fluked their way to a gold medal out of way. Maybe they did, but who cares?
