Canada stands alone again with 3-0 win

Canada stands alone again with 3-0 win

It was another golden moment for Patrice Bergeron and Team Canada as they beat Loui Eriksson and Team Sweden 3-0 at Bolshoy Ice Dome.

Great players shine on the biggest stage and for the Canadiens-it was Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews on Sunday morning. Each netted their first goal of the tournament and it couldn’t have come at a bigger time.

If this sounds familiar it is because Toews and Crosby scored in the Gold medal game in Vancouver four years ago.

Carey Price recorded his second straight shutout with a 24 save effort against the Swedes while Chris Kunitz added the third goal for the tournament champions.

It was a tough start to the morning for the Swedes as their stud Niklas Backstrom was a late scratch after failing a doping test in Sochi. It was believed to be a substance found in allergy medication. Either way, it was a big blow to Sweden who was already playing without their other top two centers.

Team Canada is a top the mountain again. They were the favorites coming in and they proved to the rest of the world why.

In other news, Temmu Selanne was voted MVP of the tournament. Carey Price took home best goaltender while Erik Karlsson and Phil Kessel took home best defenseman and best forward respectively.
