Gold Medal Game

An exciting Gold Medal game saw Sweden force overtime by tying the score with less than two minutes to go. After a scoreless overtime, the winner was determined by a shootout. The first five rounds saw two players for each side make their penalty shots (Nedved and Kariya for Canada and Forsberg and Svensson for Sweden). In the sixth round, both Nedved and Svensson missed their shots. Forsberg then scored on Canadian goaltender Hirsch to start the seventh round. Kariya took Canada's seventh round shot and was stopped by Swedish goaltender Salo—giving the Swedes the gold medal.[2]

Commemorative Swedish Stamp

In 1995, the Swedish postal service memorialized Forsberg's game winning shootout goal. Because Hirsch would not grant permission for his likeness to be used on the stamp he was 'disguised' by means of changing the color of his sweater and his player number.[3]
