After a week of people anticipating the big hockey game, the 21st came around and the game commenced. USA was the underdog for this game, but they played well and had very solid goal tending from Ryan Miller, landing them the win in a 5 to 3 win over the team in red. As anticipated, the crowd was loud and the rivalry between the USA and Canada could be heard in the crowd (but always in a nice way - after all, this is the Olympics).
This was the goal that ultimately decided the game. This score made it 4 to 3 for the USA and put Canada on their heals for the rest of the game.
Then with a minute left in the game, Canada pulled their goalie trying to get an advantage on Team USA. But Ryan Kesler (from the Vancouver Canucks) scored an amazing empty net goal, diving for the puck and swatting it into the net, at the end of the game to seal the deal.
