Team USA Beats Russia; Advances to Gold Medal Game


In an absolutely tremendous hockey game, UConn's Tage Thompson and the rest of Team USA defeated Team Russia by a score of 4-3. It was quick and furious action throughout regulation, with the three 20-minute periods taking only two hours and six minutes to complete. After nothing was solved in the 10-minute four-on-four overtime, it took seven rounds of a shootout to separate the Americans and the Russians. The hero was Troy Terry, who extended the shootout in the fifth round and ended it in the seventh.
