Finland completes the journey

43 seconds away from being eliminated….

Oh how this story could have been a lot different! What a tournament by Finland though.

They outplayed the Americans in every aspect of the final game and walked away with gold.

Here’s how it played out:

Jesse Yloven 1-0

Otto Latvala 2-0

Alexander Chmelevski 2-1

Josh Norris 2-2

Kaapo Kakko 3-2

Final Score: Finland 3 USA 2

Amazing to think the Fins were missing Heiskanen, Kotkaniemi and Vesalainen.  Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen was rock solid between the pipes, but Cayden Primeau really impressed me as he made some incredible saves and looked poised all tourney.
