Russian Federation wins men's ice hockey gold with "golden goal"

Winter Olympics legend Marit Bjoergen lifted Norway top of the final Pyeongchang medals table on Sunday, as Russian Federation celebrated a dramatic men's hockey gold - but also saw their flag barred from the closing ceremony over doping.

Let's not forget Russian Federation - or, we should say, "Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation", the shame-laced moniker they inherited after a doping brouhaha from the 2014 Sochi Games doomed them to a non-flag-carrying Pyeongchang Games. Russia's national emblems were prohibited from being displayed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which disqualified Russian Federation from the 2018 Winter Olympics for alleged doping violations.

Kaprizov had been fed the puck by the other Russian hero of the game, Gusev, who netted two third period goals, including the one that tied it, sending the game to overtime with less than a minute to go and the Germans looking like they were about to pull off a huge upset.

German coach Marco Sturm was proud of the team's achievement as the silver medal was the best finish by Germany in men's ice hockey.

They came back twice from one-goal deficits and took the lead late on a goal by Jonas Muller, who beat Vasili Koshechkin between the legs, only to have their hearts broken by Gusev and Kaprizov.

"With your joint march you have shared your faith in a peaceful future with all of us", Bach said.
