LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Finland played its second straight game Thursday without its top defenseman and team captain, Olli Maatta, due to illness.

"He's sick," Finland coach Karri Kivi said. "He's been sick four days already. … Like a flu.”

Kivi said he doubted Maatta would be healthy enough to play the final game of the camp Saturday against Sweden.

"I think he won't play. There's a small chance, like maybe 10 percent," he said.
