Ever wonder what it’s like to assist on the golden goal that caps off a startling comeback for your hockey team on the biggest stage in the world?

Just ask Hamilton native Laura Fortino – she joined us at CBC Hamilton for a live chat on Friday afternoon.

She took your questions live about the gold medal game, the Olympics, and what it was like to stay in Sochi during the tournament.

That medal didn’t come easy – it took overtime, some good bounces, a golden goal post and some insanely hard work.

Fortino assisted on the golden goal, shovelling a beautiful pass to Marie-Philip Poulin to end a wild game, when the Canadian team looked like it was staring silver in the face.

Instead, Canada walked away with both women’s and men’s hockey gold.
