Canada defeated Sweden 3-0 Sunday in the men's ice hockey final at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, taking its 9th Olympic title in the sport and second straight.

Canada won the last gold medal awarded at the Sochi Games, beating a Swedish squad that never looked like it had a chance to win.

Jonathan Toews scored Canada's first goal at 12:55 into the match and Sidney Crosby nailed the second goal in the second period at 35:43.

Chris Kunitz finished off Sweden, scoring a goal with less than 10 minutes left in the game to make it 3-0.

The last time a national team successfully defended an Olympic title was at the 1988 Calgary Games, where the Soviet Union held on to the title it won at the Sarajevo Games in 1984.

Canada is the first team in 30 years to go undefeated in the Olympic tournament.

Finland blew out the United States 5-0 in the bronze medal game on Saturday. EFE
