The US women's hockey team won gold Wednesday night for the first time since 1998, the first year women's hockey was an Olympic sport. The relationship between the US and Canadian women's teams is intense, full of alternating international victories, which have skewed more toward the US in recent years with the notable exception of Olympic gold.
Early in the game, Canadian fans felt the US got a couple soft calls from the refs. (Though, it certainly evened out later in the game with a questionable OT penalty called against the US's Megan Keller and a flagrant non-call when Canadian captain Marie-Philip Poulin made head contact with US forward Brianna Decker.) But as the early parade of power plays for the US was going, one gold medal-winning Canadian ice dancer made his opinion very clear.
