Extractions: Sweden trips U.S. in world hockey semi STEPHAN NASSTROM; The Associated Press PRAGUE, Czech Republic - Dick Tarnstrom scored 18 seconds in and Sweden beat the United States, 3-2, on Saturday, setting up a rematch of last year's final against Canada at the World Hockey Championships. Canada, which beat Sweden on a disputed overtime goal in 2003, edged Slovakia, 2-1, earlier Saturday on Shawn Horcoff's third-period goal. The United States hoped to create the first all-North American final in 54 years, but instead will face Slovakia on Sunday in the bronze-medal game. "I think it's going to take a lot of hard work," New York Rangers goalie Mike Dunham said. "We are going to have to skate well, we're going to have to dump the puck in and get a good forecheck going." Tarnstrom, who this season became the first defenseman to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins in scoring, netted the second-fastest goal at the start of a game in the tournament. "They seemed to work harder and there was more effort out there," Dunham said. "We still have a chance to win a medal."
