Four years ago in Vancouver, Team USA suffered a tough blow, coming up just short in overtime against Team Canada and bringing home silver medals.
The dejection Team USA felt on Friday afternoon was palpable: so close to upending Team Canada for a chance to play for the gold, and yet so far away.
Friday was a tough day for American sports fans. Not only did this fine country's men's hockey team lose to Canada, but they did so by getting shut out. Ouch.
But wait! It gets worse.
