Mikko Rantanen breaks into the zone on a 1 on 2 counter, does well to get to the centre but in the end the puck is knocked away by Ryan Mantha.

The United States are having the better of the offensive zone possession. The line centered by Cody Milan creates chances but the puck is just not bouncing in the United States' favour at present.
 
53:18
Finland force a turn over in the U.S. zone, but Alex Nedeljkovic makes a fantastic blocker save on Joona Jaaskelainen's shot from the point, deflecting the puck over the glass.
