Canada will settle for an appearance in the bronze-medal game at the world junior hockey championship after dropping a 5-1 decision to Finland.    

Host Sweden edged Russia 2-1 in the other semifinal earlier today at Malmo Arena.     Canada and Russia will play in the third-place game Sunday before Sweden and Finland face off for the gold.    

The defeat means that Canada will go five years in a row without gold after winning the tournament five times in a row from 2005 to 2009.    

Canada finished fourth last year in Ufa, Russia
