Watch: The National Anthem Following The U.S. Women's Hockey Gold Medal Win Will Give You Chills

US women's hockey players during national anthem.

In case you missed it overnight, the United States women's hockey team registered a thrilling gold medal victory over Canada. It is the U.S.'s first gold medal in women's hockey in 20 years.

The Americans won the game on a remarkable shootout goal by Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson. They will be playing that one for a long time on highlight shows.

As big as the win itself was, the post-game pomp and circumstance was just as important. That's where the team was able to take in what it had accomplished.

Below is the video of the national anthem playing after the women have received their gold medals. With arms linked and smiles on their faces, they soak in the moment as the "Star-Spangled Banner" plays.

Some of the players even sing along. It is really cool.

Moments like this are part of what makes the Olympics special.

It has been quite a run on ice for American competitors. First, the women won gold over Canada. Not to be outdone, the men's curling team shocked the Canadians, who were the three-time defending gold medalists, in the semifinal round.

With the win, the U.S. men's curling team advances to take on Sweden in the gold medal game. Win or lose, it will be the first time they have reached the medal stand in the event since 2006.

If they win, we may get another awesome anthem like the one above.
