Canada's Women's Hockey Team Wins Gold Medal - Feb 21, 2002
Canada's women's hockey team officially ended the 50-year dry spell that had plagued the country's Olympic hockey teams when they won the gold medal at Salt Lake City, defeating the U.S. 3–2. As part of Olympic lore, many credit Canada's “lucky loonie,” planted by Edmonton ice maker Trent Evans at centre ice, as the charm that broke the losing streak. Or perhaps they were simply an amazing team that deserved to win. Oh, and the men’s team won that year too.
