-- Alexander Ruuttu
scored off a perfectly placed pass from Miro Aaltonen
with just 1:31 remaining in the first period to give the Finnish National Junior Team a 1-0 lead over favored Sweden after one period of their semifinal round match in the 2012 World Junior Championship at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
Aaltonen appeared as though he was going to curl behind the Sweden net with the puck but, at the last possible second, zipped a pass to Ruuttu, who popped home his third of the tournament to the left of goalie Johan Gustafsson
The Swedes held a 14-6 advantage in shots in the opening 20 minutes. Sami Aittokallio
turned back all 14 shots. Both coaches had no issues having their top lines matched against the other's until late in the frame.
