Jocelyne Lamoureux shootout goal was named after Britney Spears song
Jocelyne Lamoureux helped the United States women’s hockey team win its first gold medal in 20 years with an incredible shootout goal on Wednesday, and it turns out the golden goal had an even better name.
After the dramatic victory, Lamoureux’s twin sister Monique revealed that the play in which Jocelyne scored the winning goal on is one that the team has practiced, and it’s called the “Oops, I Did it Again.”

If we had told you that the gold medal-clinching goal in the women’s Olympic hockey tournament would be named after a Britney Spears song, you probably would have thought we were crazy. Such is life in 2018.
The 3-2 win in PyeongChang gave the women’s hockey team its first gold medal since the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano. They were finally able to get over the hump against Canada, who beat them in overtime at the 2014 Games in Sochi and also beat the U.S. for the gold in 2010 and 2002.
