Four years after Sidney Crosby’s dramatic gold medal clinching overtime goal against the United States, Team Canada’s Men’s Hockey Team has won their second consecutive Gold Medal in the Winter Olympics, beating Sweden in the final game, by a score of 3-0.
Jonathan Toews, Sidney Crosby, and Chris Kunitz were the goal scorers in their win. Once again though, it was the team’s defense that put on a clinic, shutting down Sweden’s top offensive forces, and outshooting them 36-24.
“Team Canada never strayed from their business-like approach to defeat team Sweden.” – HockeyFanLand.
Goaltender Carey Price got his third shutout of the tournament, and finished it with an accumulated 123 saves on 126 shots.
“Since I’ve been around,” said Yzerman, “this is the most impressive team I’ve ever seen.”
Congratulations Team Canada! This is still our game!
