Are the World Page Play-offs Different?

Or has TSN goofed up again?
Here's the listing from TSN:
4:00amPPG2Page Playoff Game #2 - Scotland 6 vs United States 4
10:30amSFSemi Final - Norway vs. USA


4:00amBRBronze Medal Game
10:00amCFChampionship Final - Canada vs. Scotland
[apologies. I can't get the TSN table to fit on the page properly.] I thought Norway would play the winner of the 3-4 game, in this case Scotland (who defeated the US 6-4), in the semi-final. And then the winner of the game between Norway and Scotland would meet Canada in the final. Isn't that the way it works? Why does the TSN schedule show Norway playing the US in the semi-final and then Canada playing Scotland in the final? Wtf is the semi-final for, if the teams for the final have already been determined? Or does this mean that TSN has some inside knowledge that the fix is in?

Am I wrong, or has TSN hired a sociologist from York to write up things on their web page...

Note: I tried to check this on the WCF website, but it hasn't been updated yet, two hours after the Scotland-USA match.

Update: I wrote to TSN this morning and received this response:
Out of Office Reply: Curling

Update #2: Despite their being "out of office", I see that TSN has now corrected their listing of the upcoming games.
