TAMPERE, Finland -- Ottawa Senators forward Adam Gaudette scored in overtime, leading the United States past Sweden 3-2 at the world ice hockey championship on Saturday, while Switzerland topped Canada 6-3 in a game between previously unbeaten teams.

Gaudette was involved in all three Team USA goals. He scored the first for the Americans and assisted Winnipeg Jets defenseman Nate Schmidt on the second. The win improved Team USA's record to 4-1 overall, with its lone loss coming against host Finland.

Canada's four-game unbeaten start was ended by Switzerland, with captain Nico Hischier, a forward for the New Jersey Devils and a former NHL No.
