Sweden edged Olympic champions Canada 3-2 in a penalty shootout on Thursday night to set up semi-final clash against arch rivals Finland at the ice hockey World Championships.
“I’m really happy”, Sweden coach Per Mårts told the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) website after the game.
“They are a tough team to beat. We knew we had to play our best game of the tournament. Today everything worked well. I’m happy for Swedish hockey because you have to play for the medals in your home tournament”.
