Brutal luck but that was a really fun game. Good on those plucky finns. Canucks should have shot more. Not sure how you dominate posession so much and muster like 25 on net.

Toe drags (that get swiped away) and lovely flip passes that bounce away.

Weird to have a world juniors where the US won't play Canada at any point. If the Czechs or Slovaks can upset then they won't play Russia either.

The WJC is rife with individual efforts and playing against all teams like they're Denmark, but this team was a brutal offender. Gotta feel for dipietro tho.

I’m still wrapping my head around the fact that team canada brass fielded a team in which their captain is the most unlikable player in the tourney and is openly mocked by other teams. Quite the statement about the program.

I really liked how they gave him player of the game. He deserved it but I also took it as a low key “you guys suck” to the rest of the team.

Like “hey you know that goalie who just gave up the winning goal? He’s still better than all of you”

They build and coach their teams to clown opponents with half the skill and size. Makes for a few fun clownings, but they only get by better teams with individual efforts. I'm sure they'll learn for next year lol

I love how Canada either still just chokes in the quarters or wins the whole tournament without losing a single game. No intermediary result. Losing to Finland in OT in a low scoring game isn't too bad, but I can't say I had expected it to be them either. If they were going to get bounced by anyone I would have figured it to be Sweden, USA or Russia in that order of likeliest to least likely. They also haven't been by far and away the best team in the Juniors in years (lately I'd say Sweden seems to bring the strongest looking teams on paper), it's so much more even between the top 4 these days.

Anyway considering Sweden also got bounced early says a lot about the state of this tournament and how any team has a realistic chance of beating any team now unless they're Kazakhstan or Denmark. United States had some close games against Slovakia and Czech Republic too.

Then again I have a feeling what he said might be a hockey cliche in his native language.

Finnish hockey analysts tend to say that kind of stuff all the time too, like a team or their fans can be "horny" or "in heat". Certainly not so common figure of speech in North America though
