Canada's Hockey Team Beats U.S. in Overtime (2010)
You can never accuse the final event of the Vancouver Games of lacking excitement. In a thrilling rematch, a week after the U.S. beat Canada, the Canucks avenged the loss with a 3-2 overtime win to claim the men's hockey gold thanks to a between-the-pads shot by Sidney Crosby. The victory was temporarily delayed in regulation when American Zach Parise tied the game with 24 seconds left. The win gave the host nation a record 14th gold medal — the most by a country at one Winter Olympics.
