Jagr, Czech Republic face Sweden for bronze

Jaromir Jagr and the Czech Republic will battle Sweden for bronze at the IIHF World Championship on Sunday.

The Czechs were blanked, 3-0, by Finland in Saturday's semifinals. Pekka Rinne made 20 saves for the shutout, placing Finland in the gold medal game against Russia.

The bronze medal game is set for 9:30 a.m. ET. Puck drop for the gold medal match is 2 p.m.

Jagr, the Czechs’ leading scorer with eight points (4g-4a) in nine games, was limited to two shots Saturday and was held off the scoresheet for just the second time in the tournament. He entered with points in six straight (3g-4a) games.

Jagr has medaled four times at the worlds, claiming two golds (2005, 2010) and two bronze (1990, 2011). He's looking to lead the Czech Republic to its third bronze in four years.

The Russians dethroned the defending champion Swedes, 3-1, in Saturday’s other semifinal matchup. Sergei Bobrovsky made 22 saves to keep Russia in the hunt for its fourth gold medal since 2008.
