It was one of the most scintillating, but painful days in recent US hockey history, as Canada came from two goals down to defeat Team USA 3-2 in overtime.
Team USA's Olympians were there, or watched at the USA House of the Olympic Village, and they shared their emotions - from the fun of attending the game to the pain of losing.
A sour loss but always proud to be an American. Way to skate, @usahockey ladies.— Sugar Todd (@sugarmotion) February 20, 2014
