In Spectacular Fashion (take our word for it)

It isn't too often these days that Canada enters an ice hockey game as a decided underdog. But that happened today in the sledge hockey gold medal game at the Paralympics. Canada took on top-ranked and defending Paralympic champions Norway, and defeated them 3-0. It is Canada's first ever Paralympic gold in hockey.

I can't really make any personal observations on this one, since I had no opportunity to watch; the CBC coverage in the Maritimes has been extremely sparse. I see from the broadcast schedule that there will be Paralympic coverage on three Saturdays in April, so maybe I'll see a condensed version of the game then.
