The United States (US) Women's Ice Hockey team is back for redemption. After taking home the silver medal four years ago, they will have a chance to take what they believe is rightfully theirs; a gold medal.
After outshooting Sweden by an astonishing 70-9 count, including goals from six different players (Brianna Decker, Kacey Bellamy, Alex Carpenter, Amanda Kessel, Megan Bozek, and Monique Lamoureux), the Americans were guaranteed no worse than a silver medal. They will find Team Canada in the finals, who are looking for their fourth straight gold medal.
Numerous players who were distraught following the second place finish in Vancouver, know that they have a big opportunity ahead.
"When that buzzer goes off and it erupted in the arena and we fell short of our goal of being the best in the world, that hurts," American Julie Chu said of the Vancouver games in 2010 after the win. "The last four years, that's been our goal."
