In one of the most memorable finishes to a World Championship gold-medal game, it was Sweden who took a 2-1 shootout victory over Canada on Sunday to win their first title since 2013.
As a result, five Flyers on Team Canada: Sean Couturier, Claude Giroux, Travis Konecny, Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds all add silver medals to their international resume.
The Swedes held off a Canada rally in the third period in the win. Tampa defenseman, Victor Hedman got Sweden on the board first with a shorthanded goal in the second period, but Buffalo's Ryan O'Reilly scored the equalizer early in the third period to force overtime and the eventual shootout.
Nicklas Backstrom and Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored in the shootout, while Henrik Lundqvist stopped all four Canadian shooters to take gold. Lundqvist stopped 42 of 43 shots in the win, while Canadian goaltender, Calvin Pickard, made 40 saves in the loss.
Of the five Flyers, Giroux led with 21:55 of ice time, while Sean Couturier had 21:04 followed by rookie Travis Konecny with 16:57.
Giroux, who served as captain of Canada, ends the tournament with six points (2g-4a) and a +6 rating having appeared in all 10 games. He now adds a silver medal to go along with his gold medal in 2015 at World Championships.
Konecny recorded eight points, all assists, to go along with a +6 rating in his first World Championships. His eight assists tied for second on Team Canada and tied for fifth among all players in the tournament.
Couturier (1g-1a) and Simmonds (2a) each had two points, while Brayden Schenn's lone goal of the tournament was a game-winning tally.
Also representing Hockey Canada in the tournament were Flyers GM Ron Hextall, who served as GM for Canada in the tournament for the first time. As was also the case for Flyers head coach, Dave Hakstol, who served as an assistant coach of the tournament to Tampa's Jon Cooper.
