Canada's Jennifer Wakefield tries to get the puck past USA's goalie Maddie Rooney in the women's gold medal ice hockey match between Canada and the U.S. at the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games

For the fifth time in the history of the Winter Olympics, the United States and Canada renew their storied hockey rivalry in the women's gold-medal game Wednesday.

Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored a dazzling, triple-deke goal in the sixth round of a shootout thriller and Maddie Rooney stuffed the last two Canadians to wrap up a 3-2 victory over archrival Canada on Thursday.

The Dutch were Sochi's gold medal victor in the event, however all eyes are on New Zealand's Peter Michael who was the first speed skater from his country to win a World Cup event in 2016.

It was a classic grudge match between the long-time rivals who are only two countries to have won gold in women's ice hockey since it debuted at the Olympics in Nagano, Japan, in 1998.

"I ended up going with a lot safer of runs than I would have liked to but that's how the day panned out for me", O'Brien said.

"We drew the right conclusions after our performance in Sochi, and we fought for the bronze medal", coach Alexei Chistyakov said. "I am just so thankful for the outcome".

"Given, obviously, the anniversary here of the '98 team and just how integral she's been from a leadership standpoint in the lives of so many of our players, I wanted to have a quick touch point", Carey said.

The U.S. jumped out to an early lead, with Hilary Knight perfectly redirecting a shot by Sidney Morin with 26 seconds left in the first period. They'll need that again versus the Canadians, who have defeated them in five straight games. The Canadians were also stonewalled by Rooney, even when they were on a power play to end the frame.

"We wanted gold but didn't get it". Canada's pair of Phylicia George and Kaillie Humphries moved from fifth into third to finish on the podium, leapfrogging the German team of Stephanie Schneider and Annika Drazek and the American dup of Aja Evans and Jamie Greubel Poser.
