Sochi: Emma Nordin scored just one minute into the game and Cecilia Ostberg added a goal and an assist to give Sweden to a 4-0 victory over Germany on Tuesday and a likely spot in the Olympic women's hockey playoffs.
Kim Martin Hasson became the first women's goalie to play in four Olympics. She made 21 saves for Sweden, which improved its record to 2-0 in pool play.
Johanna Olofsson and Pernilla Winberg also scored for the Swedes.
Jennifer Harss stopped 25 shots for Germany.
The top two teams in the bottom-tier Group B will advance to the quarterfinals to face the last-place finishers from Group A, which includes the women's hockey powers.
With an 0-2 record, Germany is likely out of medal contention.
