Canada this time has not trembled, and led 3-1 after the first period to win the final 6-4 at the end of a third period where the two teams are made intended for objective. They were able to re-mobilise to come to the end of the Czechs in a small final where the defences have not been to their advantage. "We're ready for any team, and every team from here going forward's going to be tough".

"We rebounded well after a disappointing game", Kelly said.

Coach Willie Desjardins kept none of his forward lines intact from the Germany game, making changes to all four.

The Czechs almost drew the game closer on a Martin Erat tally shortly after Kelly scored, but Canada challenged the marker for goaltender interference, and it was ruled by the officials that contact was made with Poulin that prevented the Canadian keeper from making a save. Sweden beat Britain 10-5 in the other semifinal game. The first was a 5-1 win at the 1996 world championships.
