It was an emotional two weeks for all five of the Capitals' Olympians. Only one returns with a medal.
Capitals star center Nicklas Backstrom sat out Team Sweden's gold medal game against Canada. Reports say he has a migraine headache.
The Detroit Red Wings don't expect Henrik Zetterberg to play again during the regular season.
Sweden beat up and defeated its biggest rival, and the reward is a shot at a second gold medal in the last three Olympics.
Erik Karlsson scored the go-ahead goal late in the second period and Henrik Lundqvist finished with 25 saves, lifting the Swedes over Finland 2-1 on Friday and into the Olympic hockey final.
Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg had back surgery on Friday, and the team expects him to be evaluated again in about eight weeks.
Henrik Lundqvist made 19 saves for his second shutout of the Sochi Games and Carl Hagelin scored twice, helping the Swedes rout upstart Slovenia 5-0 Wednesday to advance into Olympic hockey semifinals without three of their best players.
With Henrik Lundqvist in goal, Sweden never seems to be short-handed.
Daniel Alfredsson scored a go-ahead goal late in the second period and Sweden went on to beat Latvia 5-3 Saturday, staying undefeated and earning an automatic spot in hockey quarterfinals at the Olympics.
The Swedes (2-0) moved into a favorable position to earn a spot in the quarterfinals as the only undefeated team in Group C. With a victory over winless Latvia on Saturday, they would be among the final eight in the 12-nation tournament.
Erik Karlsson's impressive Olympic debut demonstrated why Sweden has more than enough talent to win it all.
Sweden scored early and often. Switzerland waited until the last minute.
Although Corey Perry can tell Ryan Getzlaf what to do with a nod of his head after nearly 11 years together, Getzlaf usually doesn't even have to look at Perry to know where he's going on the ice.
Some members of the U.S. hockey team heading to the Sochi Games this weekend will be carrying some high-tech gear with them that will be kept under wraps.
Two goalies combined on a Detroit Red Wings shutout for the first time since the 2001-02 season, when they went on to hoist the Stanley Cup.
The short-handed Swedes beat Switzerland 1-0 on Friday, hours after they announced Henrik Zetterberg will miss the rest of the Sochi Olympics.
"If you look at how the team was picked, there are a lot of guys who have chemistry," Zetterberg said. "The more you are familiar with the guys you're going to play with, the easier it is in a tournament like this. We'll basically have one practice - maybe two - before the games begin. For Sweden, our team doesn't change too much between tournaments, and I think that'll help us."
