    The Finns are up 4-0, Russia cannot get crap going and they're possession game is non existant.

    A Sweden - Finland matchup for the Gold, that should be a battle, Finland is currently a machine, they are playing great team hockey and their goalie is playing awesome.

    I watched a little of the Russia v Finland game. Finland goalie is really impressive. When Finland shut down Russia during that 5 on 3 power play during the second period they were playing some damn good defense.

    Finland had some great special teams so far in this tournament, they have shut down everyone in the attacking zone, their goalie is the backup in Philly and it's possible he's taken the job away from Esche with his perfromance in the games.

    It was an outstanding game. I missed the 1st period cause I didn't know it was on and I missed the last part of the 2nd period and the first part of the 3rd cause I was doing something else. But it was an outstanding game. I don't know if you saw it live, WOY so I won't spoil it for you but you should really enjoy watching it.

    Yes, a tremendous game. I won't spoil it either but if you are a fan of good hockey you won't be disappointed.

    Well, I was hoping that it didn't get ruined for me, and until late last night I thought it was going to show live here at 5 am and I was going to get up for it.

    As it stands they showed the delay, in short... Red Wings win.

    All the goals were by Red Wings for the Swedes, and I can't remember seeing a game with so little action in the corners in quite some time. The Finns IMO should have played more of an attacking game, at times it was like watching the Devils play the Wild, neutral ice games with little transition except on the other teams mistakes.

    The 1st period was a bit slow and the Finns laid back far too long in the 3rd, but the last 5 minutes were intense and the Swedes defense was certainly up to the task.

    All and all a great game and a good medal round.

    Makes me psyched for the the resuming of the NHL and the ensuing playoffs.
