Canada dominates both ends of the rink against Sweden, advances to Final

Canada showed good team strength on both sides of the puck in their 7-0 semifinal win against Sweden. Their balanced attack got scoring from all four lines and limited the Swedes to only six shots on goal. They advance to a highly-anticipated final against the USA, while the Swedes will play for bronze against Germany.

Game report

Though it was a dominating performance by the Canadians, they caught a break right off the start. Less than four minutes into the game the Swedes put a rebound into the Canadian net and it appeared they had taken a 1-0 lead. However, the goal was called back, officially announced as a crease violation, though Swedish coach Henrik Cedergren didn’t see it that way.

“We checked the video and it was a good goal. It should have been a goal,” he said. “They never want to explain anything. They just turned around and skated away.”

However, he is not under any misconception that the early goal would have made the final outcome much better. “Maybe a little, but they’re a team that just keeps going. It would have been nice to get a goal, but they’re a little more efficient around our net.”

Canada seemed to see the early break as a wake-up call, and from there they only allowed six Swedish shots the whole game.

Offensively, they started going hard to the net. They got a pair of first period goals by Rebecca Kohler and Erika Sowchuk on rebounds and then, late in the period, Erin Ambrose unleashed a hard shot that beat Swedish goaltender Sara Bessling to the stick side. Though they were credited with only eight shots in the first period, Canada went into the first intermission with a 3-0 lead.

Early in the second, Sweden had a two-player advantage for 1:05, but failed to generate any sustained pressure. At the tail end of the second penalty, Sweden’s Olivia Carlsson was called for holding in the attacking zone, giving Canada its first power play of the game. They capitalised on it, too, as Ambrose faked a slap shot from the point and passed to Caley Mercer, who re-directed the puck into the net for Canada’s third goal. Just 44 seconds later, Laura Stacey made it 5-0, and Sweden went into damage-control mode.

Though they may have been able to run up the score, Alain made sure his team paid attention to defence first, and made things very difficult on the Swedes, who were unable to generate much even on power plays.

Canada got two more goals in the middle of the third period, Sarah Lefort on a rebound on a power play and, four minutes later, Ashleigh Brykaliuk sent a beautiful pass from behind the net to Kristyn Capizzano, who fired it home to make the final score 7-0.

Sweden is now playing for the medal that they set out for at the start of the tournament, bronze. Canada, meanwhile, is playing in the game that was anticipated by everybody at the start of the tournament, against the expected opponent.

Reactions

Henrik Cedergren, head coach of Sweden: "We always have big trouble when we meet Canada, but I think 3-0, 2-0, 2-0, that was a pretty good game. They punished us when we had made mistakes. They have pretty good defence and we couldn´t get many shots and it´s hard to score without shooting."

Pierre Alain, head couch of Canada: "We worked defensively this week, and we expected that our team to be very good defensively. Keep it at zero was one of our goals today. The start of the game was slow, we didn´t have good start today. When they scored and the goal was disallowed, then we started to play our game. That scared the players a little bit, so that helped them to start and play better after."
