Canada has advanced to the women's world hockey championship final with a convincing 4-0 semifinal victory over Switzerland on Monday in Calgary.

The win means Canada will face the U.S. on Tuesday for a chance to win the world championship gold medal, after winning the bronze medal in 2019.

Mélodie Daoust, of Valleyfield, Que., led the way for the Canadians with two goals, scoring in the first and second periods.

Renata Fast, of Burlington, Ont., and Rebecca Johnston, Sudbury, Ont., each scored one goal apiece.

The win makes it five consecutive victories in five contests for Canada, only having given up five goals throughout the tournament while scoring 31.
