At the 2014 Sochi Games, Team Canada took home both men's and women's ice hockey gold medals for the second straight Olympics.

First, the Canadian women rallied from a late two-goal deficit to top Team USA 3-2 in overtime of the final. Then the Canadian men -- after a quarterfinal scare against Latvia -- shut out the U.S. and Sweden, respectively, to capture the gold medal.

In this week's issue, Michael Farber writes about Team Canada's gold medal triumph, calling the men's team the "greatest Olympic squad ever assembled."
