Canada's Brad Gushue didn't mince words after settling for silver on Sunday at the world men's curling championship.

"Just the worst ice I've ever curled on in a major championship," he said. "I've played at some curling clubs that were poor. But not in a world championship."

Gushue dropped an 8-6 decision to Sweden's Niklas Edin in a final where precision shotmaking was difficult. An unpredictable game swung Edin's way when Gushue nosed a blank attempt in the ninth end.

That gave the Swedes hammer in a tied game and they scored a pair in the 10th for their fourth straight world title.
