The game started cautiously as neither team wanted to give the other an early advantage. The first shot of the game didn’t happen until 3:41 (Canada), and the Americans didn’t get their first until 7:48.

Canada was given three penalties of the opening 20 minutes, and during the third penalty, In the final minute of the period, a Sidney Morin shot was tipped by Hilary Knight past  Canadian goalie Szabados, with 25.4 seconds remaining, breaking the scoreless game open and giving the U.S. a 1-0 lead.

Canada tied the game on a Blayre Turnbull high shot to the net for the corner boards, where Haley Irwin batted the puck out of the air from in tight in front of the USA net, batting it in at the 2:00 mark of the second period.

Canada’s captain Marie-Philip Poulin gave her team a 2-1 lead when her wrist shot found twine at 6:55 of the second period. Meghan Agosta found Poulin in the slot, allowing the captain to tally her fifth overall goal in three Olympic gold-medal game appearances. 

Canada's conservative play in the third period cost them as they tried to defend a 2-1 lead. The Americans struck for the tying goal by capitalizing on a bad Canadian line change which left Monique Lamoureux-Morando wide open on the left wing for a pass from Kelly Pannek. She went in on goal on a breakaway and wired a shot over Shannon Szabados's glove at 13:39 to tie the game and set the stage for extra time (overtime).

The overtime was pressure-filled, and the Americans carried the play for much of it. Megan Keller had a clear break, only to be stopped by Szabados, and with 1:35 to play the Canadians had a power play. At the side of the net, Rebecca Johnston came close for Canada, but couldn't convert.

In the shootout, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored on a incredible deke in the sixth round of the shootout, while Maddie Rooney closed the door on Meghan Agosta as the U.S. won gold for the first time since the ’98 Nagano Games.

The U.S. men won their only gold medals 20 years apart (1960 and 1980), and the women have now done the same thing. They won in 1998 in Nagano, but not again until 2018. They have now won all top IIHF tournaments since 2015, including three Women's World Championships and this Olympic Gold Medal.
