US head coach Joe Sacco reacts during the semi-final match Switzerland vs USA at the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championships on May 18, 2013 in Stockholm.

It's probably the happiest I've been in my life so far.
At the end there, Gibson was outstanding ... We had only two days of preparation for this tournament and I thought our young group did a really good job. I told them after the game that the most impressive thing was ... how we came together as a group.
