Canada had been the dominant team the entire tournament. Coming in the team had won 15 straight games in best-on-best competition: it was a perfect 5-0 at the World Cup, 6-0 at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games and had won its last four at the 2010 Games.
At the World Cup of Hockey 2016, Canada had outscored its opposition 22-7, outshot it in 12 of 15 periods and had successfully killed off all it's 15 penalties.
Zdeno Chara gave Team Europe the lead 6:26 into the first period, took a short pass from Andrej Sekera and beat Price from the middle of the left face-off circle.
Chara's goal would stand until late in the third, when Patrice Bergeron redirected a Brent Burns’ point shot on the power play to tie the game with 2:53 remaining in regulation.
Then Brad Marchand scored shorthanded with 44 seconds left in the third period, as he took a drop pass from Jonathan Toews and fired a shot from between the hash marks, beating Jaroslav Halak. Marchand finished with eight points, including a team-leading five goals.
Sidney Crosby was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player. Marchand, Crosby and Bergeron was the team’s – and the tournament’s – best line, combining for 25 points in the tournament.
Carey Price finished with 32 saves.
