by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins

Sweden made hockey history Sunday in Latvia.

It became the first country to capture Olympic and World Championship hockey gold in the same year with a 4-0 win over the Czech Republic.

Meanwhile, Finland steamed past Canada, 5-0, to capture the bronze medal.

Nevertheless, Penguins 18-year-old rookie superstar Sidney Crosby became the youngest player ever to win a World Championship scoring title. He tallied a tournament-best eight goals and eight assists in nine games. He scored at least one point in Canada’s first eight games before the entire team was shut out on Sunday.

Also, Crosby was named the tournament's top forward.

Crosby’s linemate, Patrice Bergeron (6+8) finished tied for second in scoring with Finland’s Petteri Nummelin (3+11). Both had 14 points.
