NHL

Two words: Maddie. Rooney. For all the heroics of Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson on her brilliant deciding shootout goal, it was the 20-year-old goaltender from Andover, Minn, that backstopped the Americans to gold for the first time since 1998. She was absolutely brilliant, making 29 saves and making four more saves in the shootout – including one on Team USA-killer Marie-Philip Poulin. If Ryan Miller became a household name for winning a silver in 2010, Maddie Rooney became an American hockey legend for this win.
