Gushue, Edin to face off for Masters title

Brad Gushue will head into the championship game against Sweden’s Niklas Edin.

This will be his sixth victory of the major tournament — and 13th straight in the series this season — crushing Calgary’s Kevin Koe 7-1 in six ends during Saturday’s semifinals.

“We’re going to have to play like we did tonight to pull it out,” said Gushue, whose team threw a cool 92 percent. “Hopefully we can put a good game together. It’s always fun to play in Slam finals.”

The finals take place today at the Centennial Civic Centre in Lloydminster AB/SK.
