Canada remains golden in Olympic hockey

By John Vogl

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.
