Moment / After an intense regulation period and a frantic 7:40 of overtime, Sidney Crosby netted the game-winning goal against American goalkeeper Ryan Miller, sealing the gold medal for Team Canada in the 2010 Winter Olympics. It put Canada back on top of the hockey world after being knocked off in 2006.
Impact / Crosby was named an alternate captain prior to the 2010 Games, and had scored the game-winning shootout goal for Canada in the preliminary round against Switzerland. After being held scoreless in the quarter and semi-final games, he came up big in the gold medal game against the United States.
