Just like in the WJC. Canada beat USA in a game without significance. USA beat them for the WJC when it was a "gold" medal game. Doesn't mean USA was better, just meant they won a single game.
I disagree. The title of Gold Medal Game is what the whole Olympic tournament is all about. Winning that "single game" is the hardest one to win and more importantly the one that history remembers.
