Canada and Sweden have advanced to the gold medal game in men's hockey which means that several Chicago Blackhawks will have a chance at gold. Sweden defeated Finland 2-1 earlier on Friday, while Canada defeated the United States 1-0 later in the day. Both Canada and Sweden have talented rosters and have arguably the best all around teams in the tournament. Their depth up front, as well on the blue line, has been a huge part of their success. They also have goaltenders in Carey Price and Henrik Lundqvist who are playing sensational.

Let's take a look at the Chicago Blackhawks vying for a gold medal:

Canada

Duncan Keith, Patrick Sharp, Jonathan Toews

Sweden

Niklas Hjalmarsson, Marcus Kruger, Johnny Oduya

Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith won gold in Vancouver 2010 and will try to add another one to their name. The other four Blackhawks are in search of their first Olympic medal. 

United States forward Patrick Kane will be playing in the bronze medal game as his team takes on Finland on Saturday. Kane won silver in Vancouver 2010. 

The Canada vs. Sweden gold medal game will take place at 7 am. ET/6 am. CT on Sunday morning.
