Helsinki, Finland – Team Canada advanced to the gold medal game of the 2003 IIHF Men’s World Hockey Championship after beating the Czech Republic 8-4 on Friday. Canada remains undefeated at this year’s World Championship (7-0-1).

Canada will play Sweden for the 2003 IIHF Men’s World Championship gold medal on Sunday, May 11 at the Hartwell Arena in Helsinki, Finland. Game time is 5:00pm local time (10 am ET, 7 am PT).

The official broadcaster of the CHA, TSN/RDS, will have live TV coverage of Canada’s gold medal game on Sunday. Coverage will begin at 9:50 am ET/6:50 am PT. Check local listings for complete details.

Dany Heatley scored three goals, giving him seven goals at the World Championship, to lead Canada to the convincing 8-4 victory over the Czech Republic. Shane Doan (Halkirk, AB), Jay Bouwmeester (Edmonton, AB), Kyle Calder (Mannville, AB), Shaun Horcoff (Trail, BC) and Mathieu Dandenault (Sherbrooke, QC) added singles, as Canada advanced to the World Championship gold medal final for the first time since 1997.

Sweden advanced to the final game with a 4-1 win over the defending World Champions from Slovakia.

Canada faced Sweden in the opening round of the World Championship, winning 3-1.

In 1997, the last time Canada won a gold medal at the World Championship, Canada also faced Sweden in the finals. (In 1997, the gold medal was decided by a best-of-three series which Canada captured 2-1)

Canada won two gold medals in the 1990's at the World Hockey Championship – in 1994 and again in 1997. Canada finished sixth last year at the Men's World Hockey Championship in Sweden.
