Canadiens win gold in hockey, again; Hosts top medal count

Wrapping it up in Russia

Here are highlights from the final day of the 2014 Sochi Olympics:

OH SO CANADA

Sidney Crosby scores his first goal of the tournament to help Canada defend its Olympic men's hockey title with a 3-0 victory over Sweden in the gold-medal game.

Jonathan Toews and Chris Kunitz also score, and Carey Price makes 24 saves for the Canadians, who confirm their dominance in their beloved sport by winning gold for the third time in the last four Olympics.

RUSSIA 1

Alexander Zubkov drives Russia to victory in the four-man bobsled, adding that gold to his two-man from earlier in the Sochi Games and making him the sixth pilot to sweep those events at an Olympics. Latvia picks up silver and the United States took the bronze.

RUSSIA 1-2-3

Alexander Legkov leads a Russian medal sweep in the men's 50-kilometer race to give the host nation its first cross-country gold at the Sochi Games.

BUSTED

Austrian cross-country skier Johannes Duerr is kicked out of the Sochi Games on Sunday after testing positive for the blood booster EPO.

It is the most serious doping case of the Olympics. The Austrian Olympic Committee President Karl Stoss describes it as "a black day for us." Later, Swedish hockey player Nicklas Backstrom fails a doping test and is pulled before the men's hockey final against Canada.

HIGH PRAISE

IOC President Thomas Bach says the Sochi Olympics have showcased the "amazing" transformation of the Black Sea coastal city. Bach says Sochi has staged excellent games that prove it was a sound decision to award Russia the games 7 years ago.

DOSVIDANYA

Overflowing with pride after a spectacular showing at the costliest Olympics ever, Russia celebrates 17 days of sports-driven global unity with a farewell show that hands off the Winter Games to their next host, Pyeongchang, South Korea.
