Team Finland showed up, Team USA did not. The US men kept the game close heading into the 2nd period when Finland’s Teemu Selanne and Jussi Jokinen scored two goals within 11 seconds of each other. The US ended up losing 5-0 after three 3rd period goals from Juuso Hietanen, Teemu Selanne, and Olli Maatta.
Patrick Kane had two chances to even the game up for the US on two penalty shots but the first was blocked by Tuuka Rask and the second hit the right post.
It’s a disappointing result for the US considering the spectacular shootout win against Russia and close 1-0 loss to Canada.
