At the 2014 Sochi Games, Team Canada took home both men’s and women’s ice hockey gold medals for the second straight Olympics.
First, the Canadian women rallied from a late two-goal deficit to top Team USA 3-2 in overtime of the final. Then the Canadian men — after a quarterfinal scare against Latvia — shut out the U.S. and Sweden, respectively, to capture the gold medal.
In this week’s issue, Michael Farber writes about Team Canada’s gold medal triumph, calling the men’s team the “greatest Olympic squad ever assembled.”
Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews, on the cover of Sports Illustrated for the second time, scored Canada’s first goal in a 3-0 victory over Sweden in the gold medal game.
