If anything changed it was both teams were viewed as having an equal chance of winning the gold game. But if anyone had the edge, it was still Canada. But make no mistake - with a ridiculous roster like Canada (especially after they finally started to click), there is no way they weren't favored to win.
I was in several forums before the final... and I can tell you, the majority of Americans didn't seem to think they were the underdogs... and there was a lot of nervousness here in Canada that we'd be beat.
