After a major upset by the United States, defending gold medalists Canada couldn't quite clinch a medal in Pyeongchang, losing their bronze medal match against Switzerland, 7-5.
The Swiss fell to Sweden's dominant team in their semifinal match, 9-3, but performed well enough against reigning Olympic champs Canada to come away with bronze.
The U.S. victory Thursday was a remarkable comeback story for team which had never beaten Canada at the Olympics and hadn't made the podium since the 2006 Turin Games, when they won a bronze medal.
Just as remarkable was the loss for Canada, which has won the gold in men's curling at the last three Winter Olympics.
