Back to the third period with a stong USA lead over Finland. Finland put up a good fight against Team USA closing the gap to 3-2 as USA takes the win.
Pretty uneventful 10 minutes until USA Justin Abdelkader was called for slashing- Finlnd to the PP again.
Finally Finland’s Patrik Laine got one on the boards. 3-1 USA
Finlnd wasn’t done yet scoring again with 4:33 left in the game- goal by Jussi Jokinen. 3-2 USA.
Verizon Center is rocking!! Wes Johnson was in his rightful spot and Slapshot was all patriotic waving the flag!!!
TJ Oshie was first to score! Go Caps!!
Power play for USA but nothing makes it to the goal.
PP for Finland with a little more than two minutes left and with only one SOG, they returned to five on five without scoring.
LA Kings Jonathan Quick was barely challenged stopping 11 SOG.
End of second it is USA leading 1-0
