HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – Canada’s National Women’s Team has advanced to the gold medal final at the 2004 IIHF World Women’s Hockey Championship, on the strength of a 3-1-0 record through the round robin and the qualifying round, and a 7-1 win over Sweden on Sunday.

The gold medal game at the 2004 IIHF World Women’s Hockey Championship will be held on Tuesday, April 6th at 8:00 pm (Atlantic), 7:00pm ET at the Halifax Metro Centre. The game will be broadcast LIVE across Canada on TSN/RDS and CBC Radio (some regions – check local listings).

Canada will face either Sweden or the USA in the gold medal game. Sweden and the USA face off in the final qualifying game on Monday, April 5th at 8pm (Atlantic) at the Halifax Metro Centre.
