Canada wins gold medal after 3-2 overtime thriller against United States

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Sidney Crosby scored 7:40 into overtime and Canada beat the United States 3-2 on Sunday to earn its second men's hockey gold medal in the last three Olympics.

Crosby's shot from the lower part of the left circle eluded goalie Ryan Miller, the tournament MVP.

The United States had forced overtime on Zach Parise's goal with 24.4 seconds left in regulation.
