The United States continued to be its own worst enemy. The team failed to convert on four power plays, including a 65-second 5-on-3 advantage that saw the U.S. fail to produce a shot while barely earning any zone time. And two of the power plays were short-circuited by the Americans taking penalties.
Lehkonen's goal at 6:29 was his fifth in four games. Stationed in the crease, he tipped a Teuvo Teravainen shot past Antony Stolarz. Lehtonen's goal at 13:17 gave Finland a two-goal lead.
What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
