In Saturday’s semifinal match, the USA defeated the team 4: 3. On Sunday, they will play for gold against the winner of the evening semifinal between Canada and the Czech Republic. For Finland, it will be historically the first medal from the domestic championship and at the same time the third final at the World Cup in a row. The Americans had only four purebred defenders at their disposal, and in the third defensive pair, the attackers Barber and Lafferty alternated. However, they had an ideal start to the match when they took the lead at the beginning of the 2nd minute. Finnish goalkeeper Olkinuora, thanks to Gaudette’s screen, did not have an ideal view of Schmidt’s shot and it ended up in his goal – 0: 1. From the 6th minute, the Finns played the first power play, in which he was close to leveling Filppul, but he did not beat Swayman up close. Lammikko did not take advantage of Finland either, on the other hand, the successful Farrell was not a hit. The home team equalized in the 17th minute after an offensive attack by the defender Heiskanen, for whom a backhand shot by Swayman was not enough – 1: 1. The Americans had a slight shooting advantage in the first part (11: 7), but they did not add a second goal in it. In the second period, the Finns paid more attention to the defense, they allowed the opponent only 6 shots in it and for the first time in the match they took the lead in the 24th minute. Just before the disqualification of Galchenyuk, Manninen dealt with defender Jones and beat Swayman – 2: 1. However, the home team’s lead lasted only less than three minutes, as Farrell’s shot from a medium distance surprised Olkinuor – 2: 2. The Finns then stepped up the pressure, which brought a goal effect in the 30th minute. Vatanen took advantage of the hidden view of the American goalkeeper and adjusted to 3: 2. The Finns then warned on the defensive, the opponent did not allow dangerous opportunities and the goal did not fall even after a shot by Seth Jones in the 36th minute. The Finns scored an important 4: 2 goal at the beginning of the third part, when they settled in the zone in a power play and shortly after that Armia shot Swayman with a shot from behind the player. The Americans threw forces into the attack, often played in a third of the Finns, who faced several dangerous opportunities. Thanks to the prompt interventions of Olkinuor, they held a two-goal lead for a long time and came to him only during the game of the Americans without a goalkeeper. Gaudette took care of that, ending a quick collaboration with Boldy and Tynan – 4: 3. However, despite the offensive effort, the overseas team did not score more goals, and to the delight of more than 11,000 spectators, the home team completed the promotion to the finals.
