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.
