Russian hockey team beats Germany in overtime to win Olympic gold medal

Both teams scored twice in a back-and-forth third period with Nikita Gusev knotting the game with a short-handed goal with less than a minute to go to force the overtime period.

It appeared Germany was going to pull of the shocking win entering the final minute; they had a power play and the one-goal lead.

"It's a very big moment", Russian captain Pavel Datsyuk said. "Now I have no dream", he told the media after the event, via The Herald Sun.

They came back twice from one-goal deficits and took the lead late on a goal by Jonas Muller, who beat Vasili Koshechkin between the legs, only to have their hearts broken by Gusev and Kaprizov. "We knew we would do it if we won".
