STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- Sweden became the first host country to win an IIHF World Championship in 27 years in large part because of the addition of Vancouver Canucks forwards Henrik and Daniel Sedin during the tournament. Mike White Jersey . Henrik scored the winning goal, assisted on a third goal and scored into an empty net in Swedens 5-1 victory over Switzerland in Sundays sold-out championship game at Globe Arena. "To play in front of your home fans in your country and be able to win, that doesnt happen often so thats pretty amazing," Henrik said. "I dont want to compare it to the NHL because I think its different, but as far as national team, its up there with an Olympic gold medal for sure." Henrik compiled four goals and five assists and twin brother Daniel had a goal and five assists in four games they played after the Canucks were swept in the first round of NHL playoffs by the San Jose Sharks. The twin brothers had the most impact on Swedens power play. After scoring just two power-play goals in their first seven games of the tournament, Sweden scored five in their final three games. Daniel assisted on four and Henrik on three. Henrik batted a puck out of the air for a power-play goal in the second period Sunday that pushed Sweden ahead 2-1. "They showed theyre two of the best players in the world," teammate Gabriel Landeskog said. "I can confidently say that, whether they won a (Stanley) Cup or not. "Everyone was feeding off of them." Erik Gustafsson, Simon Hjalmarsson and Loui Eriksson also scored for Sweden, which became the first country to win the title at home since the Soviet Union in Moscow in 1986. Nashville Predators defenceman Roman Josi scored for Switzerland. The Swiss, coached by Canadian Sean Simpson of Brampton, Ont., was the surprise of the tournament. Unbeaten until the final, the country hadnt won a medal of any colour in 60 years until Sunday. "Were disappointed about the game," Simpson said. "We lost it, and we won nine games before. Not many people believed before the tournament that we would play in a world championship final. "Im very proud of the work our team has done and about the silver medal. Switzerland has to be proud of this team." Josi, 22, became the first player from his country to be named the tournaments most valuable player. He had four goals and five assists in 10 games and was also named best defenceman. Buffalo Sabres goaltender Jhonas Enroth made 26 saves for Sweden and was named top goaltender. Former NHL goalie Martin Gerber stopped 22 shots for the Swiss. The United States defeated the Finns 3-2 in a shootout for bronze. Canada finished fifth after losing in the quarter-finals for a fourth straight year. Sweden started the tournament on a sour note with a 3-2 loss to the Swiss. They struggled to generate offence for much of the preliminary round, in which they finished third in their pool at 5-2 behind Switzerland and Canada. The arrival of the Sedins injected confidence into the team and revitalized Swedens attack. Sweden scored two power-play goals in their 3-2 shootout win over Canada in the quarter-final and another two in a 3-0 victory over Finland in the semifinal. Canucks defenceman Alex Edler joined Swedens lineup with the Sedins, but he did not play in the semifinal or final. He was suspended for two games for his knee-on-knee contact with Canadian captain Eric Staal in the quarter-final. "We had a meeting when everyone came, when the Sedins and Edler came," Landeskog said. "We had a team meeting and talked about how its us against the world, media were against us and sometimes the crowd were against us. For us, it motivated us. It united us in the room and brought us together. "For us to come together like we did, especially in the playoffs, was an amazing feeling. Obviously beating Canada in the quarter-finals kind of gave us that push to keep going and we rolled over Finland and rolled over here." Daniel was hit hard into the open gate on Swedens bench in the third period. He was in pain, but shook it off for the post-game celebrations. "Weve been to the Stanley Cup finals before. We lost in a seventh game. Thats obviously tough," Daniel said. "Won Olympic gold. This is going to be up there with Olympic gold I would say. To do it on home ice is pretty neat."

The pace was so easy, I thought people would just come with me.I felt good and was comfortable with the pace I was going, but I knew I had the best in the world behind me and I knew they would catch me, but I just tried to hold on.I dropped down to ninth at one point, but I thought, screw this, Ive not led the race for this long to finish outside the top eight, and just went for it.I cant be disappointed with sixth place at the Olympics, but I could have done better.Irelands Alex Wright finished 46th in 1:25:25.
