TURIN, Italy -- Members of Canada's women's hockey team had anticipated they'd play the U.S. for the Olympic gold medal. The U.S. women's 3-2 semifinal loss to Sweden yesterday changed that, producing a mixture of pride and sympathy from the Canadian players after their 6-0 semifinal rout of Finland carried them into Monday's championship game. "When we thought about playing for the gold medal, in our heads our vision was always playing against the Americans," forward Jayna Hefford said.

TURIN, Italy -- There was a bronze medal, after four years of training for gold. And there was joy, if only through the eyes of a 5-year-old. As Jenny Potter skated around the rink, victory in hand and daughter Madison in her arms, the kid tugged at her mom. "Did you win a medal?" Madison asked. "Can I have it?" The U.S. women's hockey team came here on a mission - to play Canada for the gold medal, and win. The Americans lost to Sweden in the semifinals, beat Finland for the bronze yesterday, 4-0, then watched as Canada beat Sweden, 4-1, for the gold medal.

TURIN, Italy -- When the U.S. women's hockey team takes the ice today for its bronze-medal game against Finland, the only thing worse than being on the undercard to the Sweden-Canada gold-medal game is the thought of going home with no medal at all.

They are used to being the object of curiosity, having played that role for most of their lives. They are used to being asked about their game, and how it differs from the hockey being played in leagues from boys to men.The 20 players on the 1998 U.S. Olympic women's hockey team wear pads on their shoulders, not chips. They don't apologize for rules that prohibit body-checking or for being more balletic and less bullying than their male counterparts."People may have their perceptions about how hockey should be played and how hockey players don't have any teeth," said Cammi Granato, a six-time member of the U.S. national team.

When Rene Weisz brought hockey equipment home for the first time, he thought he was about to introduce his young son to a game he loved as a child growing up in Germany. Turns out he was half right. Weisz's son picked up the sport, but so did another member of the family, Weisz's 5-year-old daughter, Maxie.That was six years ago. Now, Maxie Weisz is a goaltending prodigy on the Washington Little Capitals 15-and-under girls hockey team. Her father coaches the team and says his daughter definitely has the talent to earn a college hockey scholarship, something very few male hockey players from Maryland accomplish.

NAGANO, Japan -- For the second straight Olympics, all the best American moments, all the best stories, all the best lessons, came from the women.Michael Johnson was pretty good in Atlanta, but not as memorable as Kerri Strug. Dream Team II was pretty good, but not as memorable as the women's gymnastics, basketball, soccer and softball teams.In Nagano, the difference was even more pronounced.You'll remember skier Picabo Street, speed skater Chris Witty and the women's hockey players, figure skaters Tara Lipinski and Michelle Kwan.
