Canada beat Sweden 3-0 to retain their Olympic men's ice hockey title Sunday, confirming their status as the sport's undisputed superpower.Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Toews and Chris Kunitz each scored as Canada capped an unbeaten run through the tournament to claim their third gold medal in four Winter Games and their first outside North America in 62 years.Since ending a 50-year gold medal drought at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Games, Canadian hockey has undergone a remarkable renaissance, their reign only interrupted by a seventh place finish in Turin in 2006, when Sweden took gold.Sweden and Canada had met once before to decide gold with the Swedes coming away with a shootout win at the 1994 Lillehammer Games to be crowned Olympic champions for the first time.
