The U.S. sled hockey team routed its fourth straight opponent Friday to set up an IPC World Sled Hockey Championship final rematch Sunday.

The Americans blanked Norway 6-0 in the semifinals, running its combined margin of victory to 26-1 in four games in Buffalo, N.Y., this week.

Adam Page scored two goals, while Josh Sweeney, Declan Farmer, Joshua Misiewicz and Paul Schaus potted one each.

Earlier, Canada squeaked by Russia 3-2 in its semifinal. Canada, which beat the U.S. 1-0 in the 2013 World Championship final, has outscored its four opponents 27-2 in Buffalo.

The all-North American gold-medal game will be live on NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. ET.
