    Celebrations in Swedish team, they are going to final of Memorial! Sweden played great tactical game and won by one goal. Finland is dissatisfied, they lost first, and the most important game of tournament.

    The best player of team Finland: Juha Jaaska
    The best player of team Sweden: Filip Gustavsson

    That´s all from my side, thanks for attention and have a nice evening! (19:34:46)
    Game over.
    Salo´s snap-shot from blue line, Gustavsson saved by trapper!
    Finally also the finish after the Finnish combination, Gustavsson held the puck between his pads!
    Puck in Finnish offense zone, without any shot yet.
    Finland is playing without goalie, so now 6 on 4!
    There´s going to be 4 on 4 game! Tim Wahlgren gets mionor penalty for tripping.
    Sweden plays it clever, all players are coming back during Finnish attempts on breakaway. Now there´s a time-out for Finland.
    Finns try it also in penalty-killing, they don´t have any other option. However, this individual breakaway didn´t succeed.
    Big complication for plan of Finland in the end of match! There´s powerplay for Sweden. Markus Niemelainen gets minor penalty for hooking.
    Tuulola hit the crossbar, but from outside, so no big danger for Gustavsson, who was controlling the situation.
    Andersson could pass Sweden to 2-goal lead! They performed nice breakaway and Andersson was finishing by backhand shot from great position, missed the net!
    Salo tried it by his typical position from blue line, Gustavsson saw the pack, so was managed to block it by his left pad.
    We play a long phase without any interruption, Finland is more active, but is missing really great chances to score.
    Finally now the good attack from Finland, Tuulola skated to the left circle and tried it with wristshot, goalie saved by pads, Gustavsson´s 32nd save tonight!
    Finns are looking bad after the second goal, they can´t create good opportunity to score, Sweden is also playing great in neutral zone.
    Similar situation as at second goal of Sweden, again the shot from the blue line and changed direction by forward, puck missed the net.
    Makinen tried to pass equaliser through individual action, Swedish defense is working great and now it was also in that way.
    Finnish combination in the offense zone without success, Sweden has great move there and block all potential combinations.
    Finland should have more initiative in offense part of their game, tried to get into the attacking zone and sent one shot also, goalie blocked by pads.
