Carl Grundstrom of the Los Angeles Kings decided the game with his second goal. In the 54th minute, Grundstrom took advantage of the loss of Canadian goalkeeper Jordan Binnington and made the score 3-2. Five seconds before the final siren sounded, Marcus Johansson made it 4-2 with a shot into the empty goal. By the 50th minute, Canada was ahead 2-1.

Sweden won its first World Cup medal since 2018, when it last won gold. Team Canada lost the bronze medal game for the fifth year in a row.

But the “Canucks” found themselves in the second division. Dylan Cousins ​​and Pierre-Luc Dubois scored Canada’s goals.
