Jonathan Toews set up the game-winning goal to Brad Marchand as Team Canada rallied back to beat Europe, 2-1, to complete the two-game sweep in the final at the World Cup of Hockey.
After Patrice Bergeron tied the game with a tip-in on the power play late in the third period, Drew Doughty was sent to the box for tripping, giving Europe a power play for a chance to respond.
But midway through the man advantage, the Blackhawks captain retrieved the puck and carried it into Europe territory before dropping it off to Marchand, who snapped home the shorthanded game-winner with 43 seconds remaining in regulation.
It was the second goal in a span of 2:09, helping Canada capture their second straight World Cup title (2004).
Sidney Crosby was named MVP of the tournament after scoring four goals and seven assists in six games.
Toews was fourth among all players in the tournament with five points (three goals and two assists).
