After Team Canada ran through Team Sweden 3-0 to claim gold at the Sochi Games on Feb. 23, a handful of stars from the North American country took to Twitter to celebrate their native land’s huge hockey win.
With Canada facing off against Sweden on Feb. 23 during the 2014 Winter Olympics, Canadian-born stars like Nina Dobrev hit Twitter with a ton of national pride. And after Team Canada dominated the Swedes on their way to a 3-0 victory, the social media site really blew up with a Northern celebration!

Team Canada Dominates Sweden In Gold Medal Game
A gold medal for Canada was never really in doubt on Feb. 23, as the team jumped out to a lead in the first period against Sweden and never looked back.
They had a ridiculously successful Olympic tournament, winning all of their games — including an intense victory against Team USA — and only giving up three goals in the entire tourney. They certainly deserved the gold medal, and it’s no surprise that Canada’s big stars came out to show their support.
