Richard Wolowicz

Sebastian Collberg scores the only goal in the shootout to send Sweden to the finals against Team USA.

Florida Panthers prospects Rasmus Bengtsson and Yaroslav Kosov each collected an assist in Sweden's 3-2 shootout win over Russia at the 2013 World Junior Championship on Friday.

Bengtsson played on Sweden second defense paring with Robert Hagg. He drew the primary assist on Sweden's second goal of the game by Filip Forsberg. Bengtsson finished the game with three shots on goal and an even rating.

Russia's Kosov saw third line duty. He helped set up the game-tying goal in the third period by Mikhail Grigorenko. The goal came with 2:04 remaining in the contest. Kosov finished the game with two shots on goal (both in the overtime period) and a +1 rating.

Bengtsson and Sweden advance to the gold medal game against the United States while Kosov and Russia will take on Canada for the bronze medal. Both games are on Saturday.
