After a major upset by the United States, defending gold medalists Canada couldn't quite clinch a medal in Pyeongchang, losing their bronze medal match against Switzerland, 7-5.
The Swiss fell to Sweden's dominant team in their semifinal match, 9-3, but performed well enough against reigning Olympic champs Canada to come away with bronze.
The U.S. victory Thursday was a remarkable comeback story for team which had never beaten Canada at the Olympics and hadn't made the podium since the 2006 Turin Games, when they won a bronze medal.
Just as remarkable was the loss for Canada, which has won the gold in men's curling at the last three Winter Olympics.
Sweden and the U.S. will play for gold on Saturday, Feb. 24.
