Coyotes forward Lauri Korpikoski played 16:03 and took two shots on goal for Finland.

Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson dressed for the game but did not play for Sweden. Ekman-Larsson's ice time has been reduced significantly since Alexander Edler of the Vancouver Canucks returned to the lineup after finishing a suspension that carried over from the 2013 World Championship.

With the win, Sweden advances to the gold-medal game on Sunday when it will play the winner of the United States vs. Canada semifinal.

With the loss, Finland will play in the bronze-medal game on Saturday against the loser of the United States vs. Canada semifinal.
