David Krejci opened the scoring for Czechia and Cozens tied the game late in the first period.
Cole Sillinger had an insurance goal for the Canadians, who outshot Czechia 35-26. Canadian netminder Chris Dreidger made 25 saves.
It’s the third straight time – a first for this IIHF tournament – that Canada and Finland will meet in the championship game. Finland won gold in 2019 and Canada was victorious last year.
