Erne lifts United States over Finland in shootout

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Adam Erne scored twice in a shootout to give the United States a come-from-behind 4-3 win Thursday against Finland.

After Juuso Ikonen scored in the sixth round to give Finland the lead, Erne snapped a wrist shot past goalie Joonas Korpisalo to tie it. In the seventh round, U.S. goalie Anthony Stolarz poke-checked the puck away from Finland's Ville Leskinen. With a chance to win it, Erne deked and slid the puck between Korpisalo's pads.

The win capped a rally that saw the United States finally find some offense in the third period.

Finland's Joni Nikko was whistled for interference at 5:46, and anger over the call from the Finland bench earned the team an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, giving the U.S. a two-minute two-man advantage.

Michael Brodzinski scored the first goal at 6:19, carrying the puck through the Finland zone and sliding a backhand shot along the ice that got under goalie Joonas Korpisalo to make it 3-2.

The goal was the eighth by an American defenseman in four games.

Then, 1:05 later, Erne jumped on a loose puck in the slot and shot it high over Korpisalo's blocker to tie the game at 7:24.

Back with more from both locker rooms.
