I suggest, if such a situation should occur, the one period shootout be a quadruple match-up, consisting of the Coach, Captain, MVP, and Coach's Bench Selection, and the winner goes to the Gold Medal Game and the loser goes to the Bronze Medal Game.
As Echospree suggests, the tiebreaker would depend on whichever team won when the two faced each other. However, now that you mention it, I realize that there are scenarios where this would not be enough (3 teams could finish 2-1, without a clear leader). In a 3-way tie, it would be difficult to do a shootout type tiebreaker, so I would err towards the goal differential, but again its possible for all 3 teams to have the same # of goals, so additional games may be required in that scenario.
At any rate, let's see if that scenario occurs first and then I'll put some more thought into it. :)
