Canada 3 Sweden 0 -- Getting Up Was Worth It
Goals by Jonathan Toews, Sidney Crosby and Regina's Chris Kunitz gave Team Canada a 3-0 win over Sweden in the gold medal mens hockey game at the Sochi Olympics as the event ends on a high for Canada for the 2nd straight Olympics.
The Canadian defense was once again the story as Carey Price did not have to work hard for his 2nd straight shutout making 24 saves.
Canada did not trail at any point in the final or over the course of the entire tournament and finished as the first undefeated gold medallist since the Soviet Union in 1984 in Sarajevo, beating Norway, Austria, Finland, Latvia, the United States and Sweden along the way.
