With the fans behind them, the Finnish hockey team beat the United States 4-3 on Saturday morning in Tampere to reach the World Championship final.
Montreal Canadiens striker Joel Jeremiah scored the match-winning goal just five minutes into the third half. His shot from the top of the circles made its way between his roof cushions and behind goalkeeper Jeremy Swayman, who saw nothing but fire.
Adam Judd cut his two-goal lead in half with only 2:51 left in regular time, but the Finns held out. Jose Olkenora, who plays in the Continental League, kept the guard by scoring 25 saves.
Miro Heskanen, Sami Vatanen and Sakari Maninen also rocked the ropes for the tournament hosts, who reached the final of the tournament for the third time in a row. They won the event in 2019, but were then defeated by Canada in 2021 in the gold medal match. Remember that the previous version has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
CH Sean Farrell’s hope was in the Americans’ response in the second period. The 20-year-old left winger has six points in nine world matches. Nate Schmidt was the author of Another America’s Success Story.
Finland will face Canada for the third time in a row in the final.
