Sweden 1 - Finland 6
Sweden started the scoring in 2nd but with 7 seconds left in the period Finland tied. At the beginning of the 3rd Finland scored 2 quick goal and controlled the game. What's important, is that they managed to keep the game in control and Sweden didn't really get a fair chance to come back. AND THEN FINLAND SCORED 3 MORE GOALS!!!!
This is the 2nd hockey World Championship in Finland's history (first came in 1995).
Finland has long history of losing finals.
And especially losing to Sweden in important games (see, Turin 2006).
AND NOW THEY WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Suck it Sweden.
This is seriously huge. Being able to beat Sweden in final is un-freaking-believable. This is the kinds stuff that takes mental strengthen.
They played as a team (Russia, take notes). Everyone got ice time, everyone had their part with this win. The team won. Not individuals.
Especially happy for Niko Kapanen. Poor babe has been in finals twice before this just to get a silver.
Granlund is magical. First he was winning first Finnish league championship for HIFK since 1998, now this.
I love Saku, but this Mikko fellow is rather lovely captain too.
The Kazan boys (Kapanen, Immonen, Vehanen) = money
To be fair, Sweden had young team, they played well and will have great future. BUT WE WON NOW!
