According to the Canadian Press on Saturday, team Canada will not be in the gold medal game of the 2014 World Men's Curling Championship in Beijing, China.

In the semi-final game played at 2 a.m. mountain time on Saturday morning, the Canadian team skipped by Kevin Koe of the Glencoe Club in Calgary, lost 10-8 to Sweden, skipped by Oskar Eriksson.

The loss to Sweden came two hours after Koe's team lost 3-2 to Thomas Ulsrud of Norway in the lowest scoring curling playoff game at the World Men's Curling Championship since the page playoff format was implemented.

Sweden will now play Norway for gold (Sunday, 1 a.m.), with Canada now playing Switzerland for bronze (Saturday, 8 p.m.)

A major reason why Koe is playing for only bronze is because he came up light in each of his playoff losses. In the ninth end of his loss to Norway, Canada had a chance to take the lead heading into the final end, but Koe came up light with his final stone and was only able to score one point. Then in his loss to Sweden, Koe once again was light with his final stone in the second end and allowed Sweden to score four points.
