Switzerland scored first, but hosts Sweden dominated the last 55 minutes to become the first home team to win gold since 1986. Sweden hasn't won the World Championship since 2006. It is the nation's ninth gold medal.
For the Swiss, it was their first loss of the tournament after nine straight wins and only their second silver medal ever after finishing runner-up in 1935, their highest finish at any IIHF international hockey event.
Henrik Sedin led the offence with two goals and an assist. Goalie Jhonas Enroth was excellent, stopping 26 of 27 shots. He was named IIHF Directorate Award winner as Best Goalie.
