Hockey competition concludes today with the men's gold medal between the United States and Canada. This is a rematch of a game played on Day 10, which the U.S. won 5-3.
Since the Americans defeated the Canadians for the first time in Olympic competition since 1960, the U.S. grabbed the number one seed and a bye, only to dismiss the Swiss and Finns on route to the gold medal game. They enter the game having blitzed the defending silver medalist, Finland, 6-1.
Hockey Canada, conversely, put the country in a collective state of panic. The world's number one team had to play in the qualification round just to get to the final eight. Now they've staved off elimination in three consecutive games since losing to the U.S. to set up the showdown the hockey world has been waiting for.
