It was Canadiens prospect Artturi Lehkonen who put the Finns into the gold medal game, and now it will be on him and linemate Teuvo Teravainen to get through the near impenetrable Swedish defense, which has kept their opponents to just 8 goals against in 6 games.
Oskar Dansk has been a big part of that, but the Swedes don't allow a lot of shots in the first place.
The previous meeting between the two teams saw Sweden take a 4-2 victory with Sebastian Collberg drawing an assist and Jacob de la Rose scoring the game winning goal, but that game was against a Finnish squad coming off of a back to back when Sweden wasn't. This time, the Swedes will not have such a luxury.
It will be a tightly contested game, starting at 1pm EST on TSN.
