The Americans finally took home their first gold medal in the sport since 1998. The US women's hockey team topped Canada 3-2 in an exciting matchup for its first Olympic gold in over two decades.

The victory was a stark contrast to the American's brutal loss to the Canadians in the Olympic gold medal game four years ago in Sochi and now the team can finally take home the win.

Players for Team USA called the game the biggest of their lives and now get to leave victorious against a considerable opponent. The victory will no doubt rekindle the rivalry between the two North American nations and fans of both teams took to Twitter after the exciting shootout.
