Russia thus won Group B of the women's tournament, which earned it a quarterfinal meeting with Switzerland on Saturday.
Only the top two teams from Group B moved on to the quarterfinals while all four of the teams in Group A -- Canada, the United States, Finland and Switzerland -- were assured no worse than a quarterfinal berth before the event began.
Russia outshot Sweden 31-16 to finish 3-0 in group play. Sweden also reached the quarterfinals and will face Finland.
The Russia-Switzerland winner will take on Canada in the semifinals and the Finland-Sweden survivor will face the United States.
Japan and Germany were the only teams not to make the quarterfinals. Germany scored a 4-0 win over Japan early Thursday to finish third in Group B.
