Gushue had a 6-1 round-robin record while Japan had lost its first four games, only to string together three wins to squeak in as the playoffs’ fourth seed.

Japan conceded after the eighth end when Canada stole a single point.

The men’s bronze-medal game between the United States and Japan was later Saturday.

Canada’s Kerri Einarson is facing third-seeded Satsuki Fujisawa of Japan in the women’s semifinals.
