Switzerland stuns US in hockey worlds
The United States was upset 3-0 by Switzerland in the semifinals
of the ice hockey world championship Saturday.
The Swiss will face Sweden in Sunday’s final after the Swedes
defeated co-host Finland 3-0 in the earlier semifinal. Switzerland
is guaranteed its first medal in 60 years.
Nino Niederreiter, Julian Walker and Reto Suri scored for the
Swiss, who emerged as the surprise of the tournament by winning all
seven of their group-stage games.
The last time Switzerland won a world championship medal was in
1953, when it took bronze.
Dallas Stars forward Loui Eriksson scored Sweden’s first two
goals on power plays, with both assisted by twin brothers Henrik
and Daniel Sedin.
