This afternoon's contest is extremely for Finland, who are chasing Sweden and Team North America in the standings. If they are unable to gain at least one point from today's game, Finland will likely be headed for elimination from the preliminary round.

Sweden opened the tournament with a win over Russia this past weekend, giving them two points.
