Sweden defeated Finland by a 2-1 score on Friday, as it came from 1-0 down to score two second-period goals and rode that lead for a defensive win.

After a scoreless first period, Finland scored on a bad-angle shot from Olli Jokinen that squeaked through the legs of Henrik Lundqvist.

Sweden answered on a goal by Loui Eriksson on a nice feed from Jonathan Ericsson and took the lead later in the period on a power-play, one-time slap shot by Erik Karlsson.

That turned out to be all the offense that Sweden needed, as it denied chances and got 25 saves from Henrik Lundqvist to advance to the gold-medal game for the second time in three Olympics.
