Team USA wins gold over Canada in the IIHF Women's World Championship

I watched most of the game, terrific hockey, fast paced, unfortunate ending, but the Americans were the better team this day.

I went to a couple games of the '97 World Championship in Kitchener, Ontario.
It really didn't look like the same sport. The skill levels have developed by leaps & bounds over the past 20 years.
