  1. Canadian Women Grab Hockey Gold in Shock Loss for U.S.

    Cheers from the North are drowning out American sobs after hockey fans watched the Canadian women’s team come back from two goals down to beat the U.S. 3-2 for gold — their fourth consecutive Olympic win. But Maddie Bowman’s ski half-pipe win helped keep the U.S. in the medal lead. The ladies’ skating sparked controversy with Russia’s Adelina Sotnikova beating favorite Yuna Kim. Two Ukrainians bowed out of Sochi yesterday in a show of solidarity with those fighting in Kiev. Highlights today include ladies’ slalom, curling and the men’s semifinal hockey matchup between the U.S. and Canada.
