WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – Canada scored two goals late in regulation to force overtime and then defeated the United States, 3-2, to win the gold medal in women’s hockey at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Marie-Philip Poulin scored the game-winner for Canada on a power play goal 8:10 into overtime. Meghan Duggan and Alex Carpenter scored for the United States. Brianne Jenner and Poulin had the other goals for Team Canada.
Josephine Pucci of Pearl River, N.Y., was a member of Team USA.
Team USA seemed to have the game in hand before Canada rallied late in the third period. Jenner scored with 3:26 remaining to trim Canada’s deficit to one goal. Poulin scored with 55 seconds left to send the game into overtime.
Team Canada defeated the U.S., 3-2, in a preliminary round game earlier at Sochi.
