The Fins were embarrassed by the US. I think they will be out for blood.
Slovakia spent their emotion in the game against Canada.
The Fins take this one.

The guy that Finland had in nets, had said the only way he would come was if he was going to be playing every game. He obviously over estimated himself, and his skill, and endurance.

i'm not sure what was going on inside his head during the fist period but the guy is a class act.
finland wouldn't have been in the semi finals if it wasn't for Kiprusoff.
btw i agree with shorty.. finland to win bronze.

Again, don't count the Slovaks out, they are fighters to the end.

pretty tight game so far... i know the game time was decided before the tournament but with two european teams in the bronze medal game you really think it should be played at a kinder time for us europeans... an 8pm gmt time would've been perfect for this game as wel ...[text shortened]... ty tight but couldn't help myself to place a little bet on finland.
come on the fins

Slovakia fought hard and lead 3-1 after 2 periods of play.
I liked them because they were the TRUE UNDERDOGS in the tournament, who almost won a medal. It would have been nice to see them win their first bronz medal EVER! Finishing 4th place is their best to date, I believe.
