Vyborny set up Vaclav Prospal's goal at 11:25 of the second period to cut the deficit to 5-3, but the Czech Republic could get no closer. Daniel Alfredsson scored just before the second intermission and Tomas Holmstrom scored in the third to cap the scoring.

Fredrik Modin, Per Johan Axelsson, Henrik Sedin, Christian Backman and Jorgen Jonsson also scored for the Swedes, which will face Finland in the Gold Medal game on Sunday.
