Canada shut out Sweden 3-0 to win gold in the last Olympic hockey tournament I will ever watch.
Three players who had been without a goal, Toews, Crosby, and Chris Kunitz, each scored in the effort.
Carey Price kept the Swedes without a goal, extending his shutout streak to 164 minutes.
Nick Backstrom did not play. Originally, reports stated Backstrom was suffering from a migraine. Now, an NHLPA source says Backstrom was disqualified for using a banned substance– possibly an allergy medicine containing pseudoephedrine.
So, not a great day for much of our readership.
