Wednesday, Feb. 19 • Quarterfinals

Sweden FlagCarl Hagelin scored two of Sweden's four third-period goals in a 5-0 win over Slovenia, moving the Swedes into Friday's semifinals to face rival Finland, a 3-1 winner over host Russia. Up 1-0 after two periods, Sweden broke open the game in the third, as Daniel Sedin (Vancouver Canucks) and Loui Erikkson (Boston Bruins) scored in the opening 10 minutes of the frame, before Hagelin sealed the win with two late goals. Hagelin's first goal came at 11:27, as he curled off the half boards, took a pass in the slot from Jimmie Ericsson, and beat goaltender Robert Kristan. At 16:10, Hagelin's second goal came on a redirect of a pass from Erik Karlsson (Ottawa Senators). Henrik Lundqvist (New York Rangers) made 19 saves in net to earn his second shutout of the Olympics. Sweden enters the medal round with a chance to add to its collection of gold medals in men's ice hockey at the Olympics (1994, 2006). Hagelin's goals were the first in the Olympics by a Wolverine since Mike Knuble scored in the quarterfinals for Team USA in a 4-3 loss to Finland on Feb. 22, 2006 in Torino, Italy. Hagelin is just the third Michigan hockey alum to score twice in one game at the Olympics, joining John Matchefts (USA) and Bob White (Canada), who both scored two goals in games during the 1956 Winter Olympics in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy.   » Replay: NBCOlympics.com
