The outcome hardly came as a surprise. Team USA is now 12-1 against Sweden in Olympic Games or world championships. Sweden’s lone victory came in the 2006 Olympic semifinals.

The U.S. has outscored Sweden 23-3 in the past three meetings and 93-18 overall.

“I thought we were the kind of team that we’re used to seeing: aggressive, going forward, not backing up, moved the puck really well,” U.S. coach Katey Stone said. “We’re building here and hopefully the best is yet to come.”

The American women have not won gold since their Olympic debut in Nagano in 1988. Now they get another shot to change that.

“This moment isn’t too big for any of us,” defenseman Anne Schleper said.
