Recap Of Canada’s Gold Medal Win Over Sweden

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

History is rarely on the minds of players at the precise moment they win something as significant as an Olympic gold medal in men’s hockey. The experience is too fresh, too new, and really just too much fun in the here-and-now to think about its significance or long-term impact.

In a decisive win marked by an immediately jubilant celebration just as most Canadians were sipping their morning coffees, Canada’s men’s Olympic hockey team won its third gold medal in the last four Olympics and they did it in their most convincing style yet. In defeating Sweden 3-0 in Sunday’s final, Canada complete an undefeated 6-0 run to the championship, becoming the first team since the Soviet Union in 1984 to do so.
