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.
