TAMPERE, Finland (AP) — Dylan Cozens scored twice to lead Canada to a 6-1 victory over the Czech Republic in the hockey world championship semifinal on Saturday.
Canada pulled away by scoring three goals in a span of three minutes and 19 seconds midway through the second period at Nokia Arena.
Kent Johnson’s goal was sandwiched between power play goals from Adam Lowry and Matt Barzal.
David Krejci opened the scoring for the Czech Republic and Cozens leveled the match at the end of the first half. Cole Sillinger had a sure target.
The defending Canadian champions will play Finland for gold on Sunday.
Finland beat the United States 4-3 early in the semifinal. The Americans will play Czechia for bronze.
