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.

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun..
