Canada beats USA in olympic hockey gold medal game.

Sidney Crosby scored a game winning goal in overtime to give Canada a 3-2 victory over the USA in an exciting gold medal game on Sunday afternoon, USA Today reported.

Crosby told NHL.com, "It's just really special and to be able to do it here in Canada and share it with all the Canadians. It's a dream come true is what it is."

After losing to the USA in the preliminary round, Canada held the lead for most of the game until the USA tied the score with 24.4 seconds left in regulation, ESPN reported. Then about seven minutes into overtime, Crosby scored with the wrist shot and gave host country Canada a gold medal, their first since the 2002 games in Salt Lake City.
