Canada punched their ticket late on Wednesday night with a 5-2 win over Sweden in the semi-final. Sweden had been undefeated at that point, but Canada overwhelmed them after falling behind early. Sweden has reached the semis for 40 straight years. Canada last reached the gold medal game when they won it all in 2015.
Canada-Sweden didn’t hold a candle to the chaotic semi-final between Russia and the United States earlier in the day. It was a back-and-forth contest that wasn’t decided until Troy Terry scored the game-winning shootout goal in the seventh round for a 4-3 USA win in what will go down as one of the best hockey games of the year at any level.
Canada and the United States will face off for global junior hockey supremacy Thursday night in the gold-medal game of the 2017 World Junior Hockey Championship.
