Pair of goals in second has Finland up 3-1 on U.S.

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Goals by Artturi Lehkonen and Mikko Lehtonen gave Finland a 3-1 lead after two periods.

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.

Back with more after the game.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
