"This is our game."
With those words, Canada Prime Minister Stephen Harper spoke for an entire nation shortly after the Canadians defeated Sweden 3-0 for the gold medal at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford also took to Twitter on Sunday to congratulate his countrymen. Americans David Backes and Cam Talbot were also classy in extending their plaudits to the Canadian winners and teammates who participated in the Sochi Olympics.
