Keith Kinkaid
made 12 saves in Team USA's 3-2 overtime loss to Finland in world championship exhibition action in Helsinki on Tuesday.

Jordan Schroeder (Minnesota Wild) and J.T. Compher (Colorado Avalanche) scored for the U.S., which erased a pair of one-goal deficits to force the extra session. Finland's Leo Komarov (Toronto Maple Leafs) notched the winner midway through OT.

Kinkaid, who started and played the opening 29:18, saw 14 shots before splitting the game with Condon, who stopped 13 of 14. It was Team USA's only exhibition contest before the start of the preliminary round of the IIHF World Championship in St. Petersburg, Russia, on Friday.

The John Hynes-led U.S. team is ready to go.

"It was good to get a game under our belt," Hynes told USAHockey.com. "It was a close, competitive game in a great environment that included a lot of different situations. We're disappointed that we didn't come out on top obviously, but this is a game we'll learn from and use to get ready for our game with Canada on Friday (11:30 a.m. ET, NBCSN)."

Forward Miles Wood and defensemen David Warsofsky and Steven Santini also saw action for the U.S. on Tuesday, with Santini registering a shot on goal.
