The Second Consecutive

Canada's women hockey team beat Sweden 4-1 today and won the second consecutive Olympics medal. I watched the game from the last minutes of the first period when Canada was leading the game 2-0. Then they scored two more times in the second period and that was the Sweden in the third period which had several shots on Canadian net and few powerplays but only one of them led to score and they were defeated 1-4 at the end of the game. Canadian women scored a few beautiful goals which were as nice as the ones we see in NHL games. Sweden were defeated by Canada 1-8 in preliminary games but then they beat the US and advanced to the final game for the first time. Americans won bronze after they blanked Finland 4-0.
