Another OT game between these two, and Russia's second in two days.

Mild upset I guess. Definitely not the result you expected given the two semi-final games.

I really wish there was a better way of deciding games than the shootout. Continuous OT seems right to me, but difficult to do that in a short tournament with lots of back to backs.

Sweden gave up a 2-0 semi-final lead but beat Russia 3-2 in a shootout to march to its second straight World Junior final against the United States. Sebastian Collberg scored the lone shootout goal.

Collberg used a nice backhand deke to fool Russian goalie Andrei Vasilevski. The Frölunda Gothenburg winger also scored in the shootout in Sweden's 3-2 semi-final win over Finland last year.

"It means a lot to take [this accomplishment] with me to the final and have that confidence in my game," said Collberg.

The disappointed Russians will take on Canada for bronze on Saturday before the Sweden-U.S. final. The host nation missed a chance to win its first World U20 title on home ice since 1983 in Leningrad, with a team featuring the likes of Sergei Nemchinov and Ilya Byakin.

In regulation time, Elias Lindholm and Filip Forsberg scored for Sweden.

Andrei Mironov and Mikhail Grigorenko replied for Russia, which will have to regroup quickly under coach Mikhail Varnakov in search of bronze. No host team has won this tournament since Canada in 2009.

"We have to win this game now," said Russia's Danil Zharkov. "It's the second time we'll play [Canada] in the tournament. We have to get the bronze medal."

This was a rematch of last year’s gold medal game in Calgary, where Mika Zibanejad’s overtime goal spoiled a 57-save performance by Russian netminder Andrei Makarov and gave Sweden its first and only World Junior title since 1981 in West Germany.

Despite Russia's gallant effort in the second and third periods, Sweden was better-organized both offensively and defensively overall, and deserved to win again.

"I'm proud of my players," said Varnakov. "We outplayed them in two periods. But the game is the game and the shootout is a lottery, and in this lottery we lost."

Sucks to end a game like this in a shootout, I agree... But Russia really didn't deserve to be in the gold medal game after a rather poor showing in this tournament. They squeaked by so many teams up to this game too.
