Continued: Second to one: Canada beats U.S. again for women's hockey gold

“I just looked every girl in the eye and said, ‘You guys, we’re going to win this game,’ ’’ Duggan said. “ ‘Get your heads up. Let’s do this.’ I thought we responded very well, and I’m proud of us.’’

The breakneck pace continued in the overtime. Gigi Marvin got a fine chance off a setup from Amanda Kessel, but Szabados blocked it. The two penalties—a slashing call on Jocelyne Lamoureux, and a cross-checking call on Hilary Knight as she chased down Hayley Wickenheiser to stop a breakaway — were too much for the U.S. to overcome.

While the Canadians danced and embraced and draped Maple Leaf flags over their shoulders, the Americans accepted their medals with reddened eyes and heavy hearts.

They were, Stack said, one inch from a gold medal. Now they must wait four more years to try again.

“It will take time [to get over],’’ said Marvin, a former Gopher from Warroad. “It’s tough. But I’m very, very proud of my teammates. This entire experience represents so much more than these 60 minutes.

“Yes, we wanted to win. Yes, we’ll come out of it. But right now, it’s just in the hurting process.’’
