Canada face Sweeden for ice hockey gold

10:04 am on 23 February 2014

The defending champions Canada have reached their second-straight Olympic men's Ice Hockey final by beating the United States to set up a gold medal clash with Sweden.

Jamie Benn scored early in the second period and goaltender Carey Price stopped all 31 shots he faced for the shutout as Canada defeated the United States 1-0 in a re-match of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic final.

The Swedes topped Finland 2-1 in an all-Nordic semi.
