Watch Team USA hit post on empty-net shot

Football is not the only game of inches. With a little more than one minute remaining in the third period and trailing Team USA 2-1 in the gold medal game Thursday, the Canadian women's hockey team emptied the net to get a skater advantage. After a faceoff, Team USA cleared the puck at the blue line and watched it scoot down the ice and squarely into the post. Canada would win 3-2 in overtime.
