Tre Kronor inches closer to Olympic gold after semi-final win

The Swedish men's ice hockey team, Tre Kronor, are through to the Winter Olympic final, with a guaranteed silver medal, after beating Finland 2-1 in the semi-final match.

Loui Eriksson and Erik Karlsson scored in a match that saw Sweden fight back after going one-nil down in the second period.

This is only the third time that the Tre Kronor ("three crowns") ice hockey team has made it to an Olympic final. The other two both meant gold. This time around, Sweden will face either Canada or the USA.
