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.
