After trailing Canada on two occasions, Declan Farmer (Tampa, Fla.) scored the equalizing goal with 3:26 left in regulation to force overtime and then Brody Roybal (Northlake, Ill.) notched the game-winning goal in overtime to secure Team USA its fourth gold medal in world championship history.
The U.S. is 8-3-1-9 (W-OTW-OTL-L) overall against Canada at the Para Hockey Cup tournament.
