The victory marks the U.S. team's first gold since 1998.

Congrast to the The United States women's hockey team! They defeated Canada 3-2 after a dramatic shootout to win a gold.

Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored in the first extra round of the first shootout tiebreaker to cap off the victory.

Maddie Rooney stopped Meghan Agosta on her second try of Thursday's shootout to clinch it. Rooney stopped 29 shots in regulation and the 20-minute overtime. Shannon Szabados made 39 saves for Canada, which had won four straight Olympic gold medals.

Fun fact: The Americans won the inaugural women's gold medal in 1998, but had not beaten Canada in the Olympics since.
