Dallas Stars forward Loui Eriksson is headed to the gold medal game at the World Championship in Slovakia after Sweden defeated Czech Republic 5-2 today in the semifinals.

Eriksson had no points, five shots on goal and an even rating in 17:01 of playing time. He did have a great opportunity to score, but missed on a penalty shot that would have put the Swedes up 3-1 in the second period.

Erikson has 4 points (3 goals, 1 assist) and a plus-6 rating in 8 games for Sweden, which will play Finland, a 3-0 winner over Russia, in Sunday's gold medal game. Russia and Czech Republic will play for the bronze.
