SOCHI, Russia -- Erik Karlsson scored the go-ahead goal late in the second period and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 25 shots, lifting Sweden over Finland 2-1 on Friday and into the gold-medal game at the Sochi Olympics.

The 2006 Olympic champions will face Canada on Sunday.

The Finns will play the United States for bronze on Saturday.

All the scoring came in the second period, with Finland going ahead 1-0 on Olli Jokinen's goal from a sharp angle to the left of Lundqvist.

Sweden's Loui Eriksson tied the game by finishing off a sweet sequence of passes midway through the period. Karlsson made it 2-1 with a slap shot from the middle of the ice just inside the blue line with 3:34 left.
