You now have exactly two Olympic gold medals in the last 50 years.

Exactly the same number as the U.S. and Sweden.

I love Canada and Canadians but give it a rest junior.

For now, congrats on a great game.
Actually, it could be argued that the fact that the Olympics were in Canada contributed to a very stiff team afraid to fail because the pressure was unimaginable. It could have actually been detrimental to our hockey team. The fact that the game was sent into OT amplifies this even more.

I would say, congratulations on not wilting under the insane pressure and still winning.
