    Background: CALGARY & EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA

    The United States and the Soviet Union have suffered surprised defeats in the semi-finals of the Canada Cup Ice Hockey Tournament in Alberta. After their round-robin games on September 10, the Untied States and Sweden were lying second and third respectively in the Cup's standings. But Sweden swept to a 9-2 victory in the semi-final match on September 12. The Swedish side will now meet Canada in a best-of-three final starting on September 16. The Canadian team won a place in the final after a surprise victory over the Soviet Union in the semi-final match on September 13. The home side clinched their victory in the 13th minute of the first overtime period, when Mike Bossy deflected a 12 metre shot by Paul Coffee past Soviet goalkeeper Vladimir Myshkin. John Tonelli intercepted an opponent's pass in the Soviet end and passed back to Coffee, who skated in from the blue line and shot. The puck deflected off Bossy's shoulder into the net. The final score was 3-2 to Canada.
