Updated: February 20, 2010, 12:17 AM ET

Four years ago, Belarus stunned eventual men's hockey gold medalists Sweden.

Friday, Sweden avenged another potential upset at the hands of Belarus with a narrow 4-2 win.

The Swedes led 3-0 but Belarus got within a goal with 5:10 remaining. Sweden held on and scored the fourth and clinching goal with 10.4 seconds left.

"I think we got a little scared in the end," said Swedish forward Peter Forsberg, a holdover from 2002.

Belarus has only two NHL players, Sweden 19.
