Team USA Will Play For Gold In Women’s Hockey

from Lucas Aykroyd of IIHF.com,

With Monday's victory, the United States women are bound for the Olympic gold medal game for the fourth time. Featuring 11 returning players from the 2010 team that settled for silver with a 2-0 final loss to Canada, they’re hungry to top the podium for the first time since Nagano 16 years ago.

Boasting the highest-scoring attack here in Sochi, the Americans appear primed for a likely final rematch with the Canadians.

Sweden will face the loser of Canada-Switzerland in the bronze medal game. The Swedes last won Olympic bronze in 2002. They finished fifth in 1998 and fourth in 2010.

The American skaters were simply stronger, faster, and better-organized in every aspect of the game. The Swedes could only offer a token resistance after surprising favoured Finland 4-2 in the quarter-finals.
