Finland beats Sweden in long shootout

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Juuso Ikonen scored in the 10th round of a shootout as Finland ended with a 3-2 win against Sweden in the final game of the national junior evaluation camp this week.

Ikonen skated hard up the middle of the ice, deked and lifted the puck high under the crossbar, past goalie Oscar Dansk.

Finland had tied the game early in the third on Teuvo Teravainen's second goal of the game, but that's where the scoring stopped for a while.

A scoreless overtime saw Finland goalie Juuse Saros make four saves, while Dansk made three.

Back with more from both locker rooms.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
