  • USA men's curling makes history, will play for gold

The loss hurts most for Canada though, coming in as the defending World Champions and winners of the last three Olympic Games.

He didn't make the cut.

Scenes of joy for Germany.

Before the game George said, "This is what you dream about as a teenager when you are out practicing and throwing rocks".

During the medal presentation, however, there were no smiles to be had as Silver Medals were handed out to Team Canada, and Canadian defenseman Jocelyn Larocque made her feelings known when she immediately removed her medal upon it being placed around her neck. If you want to play anybody at the Olympics with medals on the line - it's Canada. The Americans - Shuster, Hamilton, Tyler George and John Landsteiner - will play Sweden on Saturday in the gold medal match. "We are all in this big giant global community", said Walinga.

"I don't feel disappointed in our effort or the guys".

Last month, Swedish captain Lias Andersson created controversy when he tossed his medal into the stands after his team lost to Canada at the world junior hockey championships last month in Buffalo, N.Y. He said the fan wanted it more than him.

HU: This victory was especially sweet after a 20-year gold medal drought and after all the battles the team has won off the ice. It was Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson who bookended the U.S. scoring, earning the game-winning goal in the shootout.

" Its a big frustration I think for everybody in Canada the expectation for hockey in Canada is always so high", said Peter Swan.

The general manager of Canada's national team programs says they expect professionalism and sportsmanship from their players.

"Second in the world".

"The Canadian women's hockey team worked hard". Once again it's another medal for Canada.

It was a faceoff violation by former NHL players Derek Roy and Rene Bourque that set up a 5-on-3 power-play goal by Macek. She received plenty of flack from those watching the moment.

The team qualified for the Olympics - a second for Landsteiner and alternate Joe Polo, and a first for Hamilton and George. Shuster played it safe, throwing away one stone intentionally to keep the target area clear and avoid the traffic that can lead to big scores. The silver comes as a disappointment to many, because you receive it after losing a gold medal game. Melbourne, as a city, would've been cancelled.
