Underdogs Sweden were crowned world champions in dramatic fashion on Sunday, stunning Canada in a penalty shootout after the teams were locked at a 1-1 tie over 80 minutes.

The Swedes and Canadians went through a feeling-out process in the first period. Shots were 12-10 for Sweden after one period.

The first goal came when Victor Hedman threw a backhander through traffic and the puck bounced on the ice and slipped under Calvin Pickard with 20.8 seconds left in the second period.

The Canadians once again used their power play to get back into the game in the third with Elias Lindholm sent to the penalty box for high sticking at 1:48. It took just 10 seconds for O'Reilly to tie the game at 1-1 by flipping a Mitch Marner rebound over the right shoulder of Lundqvist. It was the first special-teams goal that Lundqvist had surrendered in five tournament games.

But instead of staging a comeback like the one that carried them past Russia in the semi-finals, Canada's hopes of a third successive world title were dashed by the determined Swedes, who kept the game tied through regulation.

Sweden had a slight edge in overtime by outshooting Canada 11-10. In the shootout, William Nylander was denied by Pickard, then Nathan MacKinnon couldn't slip his shot through Lundqvist's five-hole. Backstrom, Sweden's second shooter, beat Pickard low to the stick side before Brayden Point's attempt was snagged by Lundqvist's glove. Oliver Ekman-Larsson caught Pickard moving to put Sweden up 2-0, then Ryan O'Reilly was denied by Lundqvist. Pickard kept Canada alive by stopping his Colorado Avalanche teammate Gabriel Landeskog before Lundqvist stopped Marner to secure the gold for Sweden.

The win is Sweden’s first in four tries against Canada since the IIHF instituted the playoff system in 1992, and their first since 2013. Sweden stops Canada from being the first team to three-peat since the Czechs accomplished the feat between 1999 and 2001.

Earlier in the day, Russia defeated Finland 5-3 to capture its second consecutive bronze medal.
