Finland beats Russia for the bronze medals

Finland proved again that they never give up. Russia dominated the opening of the bronze medal game but Finland once again turned it to a win.

 
 
 
 

Finland leaves Edmonton with the bronze medals after beating Russia 4-1. Mikko Petman scored the winner early in the third period on a deflection on a shot from the stick of Eemil ViroAnton Lundell and Juuso Pärssinen added an empty net goal each to win the game 4-1.

It was all about Russia in the beginning. Finland, who had a tough late game yesterday, was slow-started. Ilya Safonov scored 1-0 for Russa at six minutes on a rebound from Finnish netminder Kari Piiroinen.

Finland struggled for more than 10 minutes before they managed to fire their first shot on goal.

At the end of period one and in period two the game was closer. Maybe even with a little advantage for Finland who tied it at 25:05. Anton Lundell deflected a shot from Topi Niemelä for the equalizer.

Finland may be dangerous at the World Juniors next year too as eleven players are eligible to return from this squad.
