Team Canada survived second period run by the Americans and will now have the chance to win a gold medal for the second time in as many years.
Ryan Ellis scored the winner 1:34 into the third period and Canada defeated the United States 4-3 on Saturday in the semifinals of the World Championship.
Finland put an exclamation point in its title as the best team in Group B on the final day of preliminary play at the World Championship.
The Finns defeated Canada 4-0 on Tuesday in a matchup of the top two clubs, securing the pool's No. 1 seed going into the quarterfinals.
Goaltender Calvin Pickard registered his first career World Championship shutout and Canada defeated France 4-0 on Monday at the Yubileiny Ice Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Canada's victory sets up a big matchup on Tuesday against Finland for the top seed in Group B. Both squads are tied for first place with 18 points, though the Canadians hold an edge in goal differential (30-19).
Pickard wasn't tested much Monday, but he was perfect when he was. The Colorado Avalanche netminder stopped all 13 shots against and has now denied 34 of 35 in his two outings in Russia. Pickard last played May 8, where he won his Worlds debut in the Canadians' 7-1 defeat of Hungary.
Matt Duchene and Team Canada continued their torrid pace at the World Championship on Monday in an 8-0 win over Belarus at the Yubileiny Ice Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Duchene had his first three-point game of the tournament, recording a goal and two assists, while Canada improved its record to a perfect 3-0-0-0 after four days of competition. The Canadians have outscored their opponents by an impressive 20-2 mark.
Canada outshot Belarus 40-13 and tallied four times in the second period before adding three more in the third in the blowout victory. Team Canada registered three power-play goals on five opportunities and also added a short-handed marker as well.
Colorado Avalanche forward Andreas Martinsen was the overtime hero for Norway.
Martinsen scored the winning goal on the power play at 2:23 of the extra period to lead the Norwegians to a 4-3 victory over Switzerland on Sunday at the Ice Palace in Moscow, Russia.
Just 1:24 after the Swiss' Yannick Weber took a high-sticking penalty in OT, Martinsen ended the contest with one-time wrist shot from the left circle.
The United States capitalized on three of its six power-play opportunities and defeated Belarus 6-3 on Saturday at the Yubileiny Sports Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia, for its first victory at Worlds.
Matt Duchene had a goal and an assist and Canada defeated the United States 5-1 on the opening day of the 2016 IIHF World Championship.
Team USA opened the scoring in the first period, but after that it was all Canada, which tallied five straight in the victory on Friday at Yubileiny Sports Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Duchene's score was a thing of beauty, as he took the puck from the right wall and cut into the slot before firing a shot high, far side on American goaltender Keith Kincaid to make it a 3-1 game.
The Avs recalled Andrew Agozzino from the San Antonio Rampage on Friday afternoon and the left wing is expected to play in Saturday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.
Agozzino leads the Rampage with seven goals and 16 points in 13 games this year after leading Colorado's AHL affiliate in Lake Erie in scoring for the past three seasons. The skilled forward made his NHL debut on Nov. 22, 2014, with the Avs, registering his first point with an assist in his lone big-league contest versus the Carolina Hurricanes.
The Avs had a pre-scheduled off day on Sunday, so the coaches took advantage of the time they had with the players in preparing for tonight's game against the Jets. The team practices for roughly 30 minutes on the ice before going over video with the coaches.
