Lineups for USA White vs. Finland

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- USA White will juggle a few of its lines and defense pairings for Monday's game against Finland, while the Finnish lineup will look mostly the same from its first game, a 6-5 overtime win against USA Blue on Sunday.

Collin Olson will start in goal for USA White, and play about half the game. Jon Gillies, who started Sunday in a 4-2 loss to Sweden, will play the second half of the game.

Joonas Korpisalo, a Columbus Blue Jackets prospect, will start in goal for Finland.

Worth keeping an eye on is Finland's top line of Teuvo Teravainen centering Artturi Lehkonen and Kasper Kapanen. On Sunday, Teravainen had a goal and three assists, including the primary assist on the overtime goal, while Lehkonen had a hat trick, including the game-tying goal with 11 seconds left in regulation.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
