Sweden is just one win behind the Canadians after stealing a point in the final end to beat Denmark 7-6.

The United States stayed alive in the tournament by picking up an 8-6 win over Japan in another evening session game. Erika Brown's rink is 1-4 and still could qualify by winning its final four games.

World champion Britain was under pressure after losing two of its first three games but beat China 8-7 in the morning session to revive its chances of reaching the semifinals.

Canada won both of its matches 8-5 to top the standings outright.
