2018 Winter Olympics Medal Tracker: Team USA women finally win hockey gold

Wake up your neighbors: the United States women's hockey team finally beat Canada to win the Olympic gold. Maddie Rooney, just 20 years old, made the save of her life in a shootout that went to extra shots to give the U.S. women their first hockey gold since the 1998 Olympcs in a 3-2 win. 

That thrilling result on Thursday in South Korea came on Team USA's most prolific day yet, though it also featured heartbreak for Lindsey Vonn, who saw her last, best chance to win a gold medal vanish in an instant in the slalom portion of the combined. Mikaela Shiffrin held on for a silver medal -- her second medal of these Olympics -- while Vonn, the last skier to race in the slalom after winning the downhill portion,  hooked a tip around a gate near the top of the course and was out. 

Elsewhere, Jamie Anderson picked up a silver in a hucking awesome debut for snowboarding big air at the Olympics, and Team USA's David Wise and Alex Ferreira went 1-2 in the men's ski halfpipe final. It's Anderson's second medal at these Olympics, to go with her gold in slopestyle, and her third overall.

Here's where Team USA currently sits in the medal count:
