US women coast past Sweden 6-1 in Olympic hockey

Posted: Updated:
SOCHI, RUSSIA (WFLA) -

Megan Bozek, Kendall Coyne and Brianna Decker each had a goal and two assists to help the United States beat Sweden 6-1 Monday and earn a spot in the gold medal game at the Sochi Olympics.

Jesse Vetter needed just eight saves to help the Americans clinch no worse than a silver medal. The U.S. has medaled in every Winter Games since women's hockey was added in 1998, and just once - with a loss to Sweden in the 2006 semifinals - failed to reach the Olympic championship game.

The United States will play the winner of the late semifinal between Canada and Switzerland for the gold medal. A victory by Canada would set up a rematch of the 1998, 2002 and '10 finals.
