Canada didn't need overtime to prove it was the best this time.
The Canadians rolled to another shutout in the medal round this morning and blanked Sweden, 3-0, to win a second straight gold. Canada won in 2010 with an overtime victory against the United States. The True North advanced to this year's gold-medal game by shutting out Team USA in the semifinals.
Canada goalie Carey Price was the most outstanding player of the tournament. He finished with a shutout streak of 164:19. He was 5-0 with an 0.59 goals-against average and .972 save percentage.
Sweden played without center Niklas Backstrom, who was disqualified after testing positive for a banned substance commonly found in allergy medication.
