SOCHI, Russia - A look at the goals from Canada's 3-0 win over Sweden on Sunday in the men's hockey gold medal game at the Sochi Olympics:
1-0 Canada — Jonathan Toews scores his long-awaited first goal of the tournament when he fights off Sweden defenceman Patrik Berglund and tips Jeff Carter's pass from the right wing through the pads of Henrik Lundqvist at 12:55 of the first period.
2-0 Canada — Another top Canadian forward breaks a scoring drought when captain Sidney Crosby scores his first of the tournament. Crosby's goal is worth the wait as the hero of the Vancouver Games steals the puck from Sweden's Jonathan Ericsson at Canada's blue-line, then skates in alone and beats Lundqvist on the backhand at 15:43 of the second.
3-0 Canada — Chris Kunitz, a controversial pick for Canada's team, justifies his selection when he takes the puck form Daniel Sedin, cuts into the Swedish zone and fires the puck past Lundqvist at 9:04 of the third.
