    Goal for Team Finland! Finland find a way through and take the two points. WALTTERI HOPPONEN lights the lamp with a wrist shot from the left wing circle.
    A two man advantage for Finland now. Jack Dougherty is sent to the box for a slashing infraction, giving Finland 24 seconds of 5 on 3 powerplay to close out the third period.
    Finland will have a powerplay for the rest of regulation, that is if they don't score first. Good puck movement by Finnish captain Manu Honkanen forces Kyle Connor to take the hooking penalty.
    Goal for Team USA! The U.S. make the powerplay count! First he hit the post and now KYLE CONNOR makes good on the man advantage, tucking the puck away at the back door.
    It's now or never for the United States. Markus Haapanen is sent to the box for an interference penalty in the neutral zone.
    Goal for Team Finland! After U.S. pressure, Finland go on the counter attack and score from a broken play. The Finns gain the zone and the initial shooting attempt is blocked, but Jokerit forward MIRO MAKINEN gets his stick to the puck near the left wing circle and it ends up in the back of the net. Assist to Antti Kauppinen
    2 on 1 counter attack for the States, but Austin Poganski's centering feed is blocked expertly by a sliding Sami Niku.
    Fantastic save by Kahkonen. Kyle Connor sends a pass from the right wing corner right onto the tape of Nick Schmaltz at the back post, but Kahkonen makes a sprawling pad stop and is able to freeze the puck in the ensuing scramble.
    Penalty to the United States. Chase Phelps gets two minutes for holding.
    Another great chance for the States. A fantastic block by Rouhianen is the only thing that keeps the United States from re-taking the lead.
    U.S. hit the post! Fantastic puck work by the States and Schmaltz's pass from the left wing finds Kyle Connor alone at the back post, but he rings the pipe with his shot!
    Penalty to Finland. Atte Makinen gets two minutes for interference.
    Penalty to the United States. Nick Wolff gets a two minute penalty for holding
    Goal for Team Finland! Thirty-five seconds into the second period and Finland equalise. Finland gained the offensive zone, and the top line, who impressed in the first period lights the lamp. Mikko Rantanen is all alone at the back door and tucks the puck away. Assist to Juho Lammikko
    Fantastic save in the final minute. The game is wide open and the United States have a great chance on the counter attack. A 2 on 1 develops and Dylan Malmquist gets the puck in front of goal, but a sprawling Kahkonen sticks out his left pad to make the save
    Penalty to Finland. Two minutes for too many men. Sebastian Aho serves the penalty.
    Penalty to Finland. Jarkko Parikka sits for two for delay of game.
    The United States scored with eight minutes gone in the first period. Portland Winterhawks forward PAUL BITTNER put the puck in the net for the U.S. just as a penalty expired for the away side. We sincerely apologise for the lack of updates during the first ten minutes, due to technical difficulties.
    Minor penalty to USA's Joseph Snively for hooking. Finland to the power play.
