Canada defeated Sweden 3-0 to win the gold medal in men’s hockey at the Sochi Games.

Jonathan Toews, Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz scored for Canada while Carey Price made 24 saves for the shutout.

Canada becomes the first country to defend the Olympic title since NHLers began participating in 1998.

A first period goal by Jonathan Toews and a breakaway marker from Sidney Crosby midway through the second period gave Canada a 2-0 lead heading into the third period.

Much-maligned pick Chris Kunitz fired a wrist shot past Swedish netminder Henrik Lundqvist for Canada’s final goal.

Toews tipped in a Jeff Carter shot from the halfwall midway through the first period to put Canada on the board.

Canada began to take control after an early Swedish barrage and the dam finally broke when a neutral zone turnover turned into a Sidney Crosby breakaway. Canada’s captain made no mistake and beat Lundqvist on a backhand.

Sweden activated their defence to begin the third period in an attempt to create some offensive opportunities but Canada’s defence held tight. As the period wore on, Canada’s cycle game took over, pinning Sweden deep in their own zone for long stretches.

Pundits expected Sweden to play a defensive style to counter Canada’s superior talent, especially without the services of top centre Nicklas Backstrom, but Sweden did the opposite and forechecked aggressively from the drop of the puck.

It paid off for Sweden in the early going as Canadian netminder Carey Price was forced into several early saves.

However, Canada was able to adapt and began to control play forcing Lundqvist into several acrobatic stops.

Although not terribly busy after an early barrage, Price made several key saves to maintain Canada’s lead.

Controversy

The Swedish Hockey Federation says Nicklas Backstrom was scratched from Sunday’s Olympic gold medal hockey game because he tested positive for a banned substance.

Final score: 9-3

Another curling gold for Canada.

Brad Jacobs’s team took a commanding 8-2 lead after six ends. Britain scores one in the seventh, missing a final chance to get back into the match.

By that point it would have been incredibly difficult for two-time world champion David Murdoch to come back.

The Canadians has a solid lead at the break, despite Britain scoring one in the fifth.

A steal in the fourth allowed skip Brad Jacobs to extend his team’s lead over two-time world champion David Murdoch.

Jacobs drew for three in the third:

Canada began with a strong first end, scoring two. Britain responded in the second with a single point.

Background

Canada arrived in Sochi as the favourites after winning gold in 2010 and 2006. They have never finished worse than silver since the sport returned to the Olympics in 1998.

After a rough start in the round robin, Brad Jacobs’s team has been playing well through to the final, and hopes to make it double curling gold for Canada after Jennifer Jones’s win yesterday.

Brad Jacobs discusses his medal ambition:

To get another medal for all of Team Canada is a great feeling, but at the same time, we want to come out and we want to get that gold.

Gold!

Canada has won 3-2 in a dramatic game against their rivals from the U.S, with two goals from Poulin, delivering Canada’s women’s hockey team its fourth straight Olympic gold medal.

Once again, Marie-Philip Poulin has played the Olympic hero for Canada.

Just as she did four years ago for Gold at the Vancouver Olympics, she scored a pair of goals in Sochi to beat the U.S women’s hockey team, this time 3-2 in overtime, completing a thrilling Canadian comeback from down two goals in the third period.

The U.S., considered by many the favourite for Gold in Sochi, had a two goal lead in the third period, before Brianne Jenner of Oakville, Ont put Canada on the board in the third, and Quebec City’s Poulin followed with the tying goal before scoring the winner in the sudden-death overtime period.

The U.S team had a 2-0 lead with goals from Alex Carpenter and Meghan Duggan in the second and third period.

It’s the fourth straight Gold at the Olympics for the Canadian women’s hockey team. The U.S hadn’t won gold since the women’s game debuted at the 1998 Nagano Olympics.

Canada has won the past three Olympic gold medals. The U.S last took gold when the women’s game debuted at the 1998 Nagano Olympics.The United States were the favourites heading into the tournament, but lost to Canada earlier in the Games. Jayna Hefford and Hayley Wickenheiser have been with the Canadian team since women’s hockey made it’s Olympic debut in Nagano in 1998.

Team Canada took to Twitter after the games to celebrate:
