According to the Hockey Canada website, Canada defeated Switzerland 3-1 in the semi-finals of women's hockey at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi on Monday.

Natalie Spooner of Scarborough, Ontario scored Canada's first two goals in the first period. The first was even strength and the second was on the power play. The Canadians then took a 3-0 lead 23 seconds after Spooner's game winner as Melodie Daoust of Valleyfield, Quebec notched a key insurance goal.

Switzerland meanwhile bounced back with a power play goal by Jessica Lutz at 5:14, but could not beat Canadian goaltender Shannon Szabados of Edmonton, Alberta for the rest of the contest.

The Swiss goaltending was equally strong. Florence Schelling made 45 saves and was named the game's first star. If it was not for Schelling, the score could have easily been 8-1.

Canada will now play the United States in the women's gold medal game (CBC, Thursday, 10:00 a.m.). The Americans defeated Sweden in the other semi-final 6-1.
