Canadian Olympic ice hockey champions in Beijing

The Canadians became Olympic ice hockey champions on Thursday after beating their American rivals at the Wukesong Sports Centre. They won 3-2, with a brace from Marie-Philip Poulin (and an assist) and a goal from Sarah Nurse (and an assist). The United States reduced the score to 3-2 with thirteen seconds remaining in the third and final third. Too late to hope to hang the extension.

This is the sixth time in seven Olympic finals that Canada and the United States have met (Sweden was invited in 2006 against the Canadians). Titled four times in a row from 2002 to 2014, the Canadians took back the good they left in Pyeongchang in 2018. In the bronze medal game, Finland beat Switzerland (4-0).
