Team Canada goalie Roberto Luongo (above) called it "an unbelievable stage." In the most important hockey game ever played in Canada—and the last event of the Olympics—the hosts battled the U.S. in front of a frenzied crowd and the largest Canadian TV audience in history (26.5 million, or 80% of the population, watched at least some of the game). Canada, up 2-1, had a chance to seal the win on a third-period breakaway by national idol Sidney Crosby (right), but Sid the Kid couldn't get a shot off. Instead, the U.S.'s Zach Parise muscled in a last-minute goal to force overtime. Seven-and-a-half minutes in, Crosby called for the puck, took a pass from Jarome Iginla and fired a shot past U.S. goalie Ryan Miller. All of Canada erupted. Game over. Games over. Gold.
