LITTLE ROCK, AR - It was a big day on the ice for the women of Team USA as they skated against arch-rival
Canada in the gold medal game.

The U.S. built a 2 goal lead, coughed it up in the final 3 and a half minutes and then lost in overtime
with a power play goal.

The Canadian women won their 4th consecutive Olympic gold medal.

In Little Rock, some fans gathered at Gusano's to watch the women play.

"We didn't even know there was a women's hockey team playing. I hope they do well. Regardless of a medal
or not, we support the women's hockey team, and tomorrow we will be cheering on the mens' hockey team,"
said fan Matt Oswald before the game.

The U.S. men's hockey team takes on Canada Friday morning at 11.
