Canada, Finland tied after two periods as PKs shine

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Special teams told the story in the second period as penalty killers for Canada and Finland stood tall.

Finland's Saku Salminen scored the period's only goal at 3:07, one-timing a Jusse Ikonen pass past Eric Comrie to tie the game 2-2.

Canada's shorthanded unit kept Finland from doing any more damage, killing off a cross-checking call on Matthew Finn. It was the fourth successful kill for Canada in the game.

Finland's man-down group did yeoman's effort later in the period, denying Canada on back-to-back power plays, including a 14-second 5-on-3 Canada advantage.

Comrie stopped seven of eight shots in the second, while Finland's Juuse Saros stopped all 15 shots he faced.

Back with more after the game.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
