    Olli Jokinen, as I understand it, will only play in the 2nd game.

    yup, I assume there are more Finnish players that will only play the second game since there are 16 forwards on this roster

    yup, it's pretty much the unofficial European Hockey Championships.
    They play two games. The first one in Sweden tonight and the second one in Hartwall Arena Sunday.

    SWE-FIN 3-1 (2-0, 1-1, 0-0)

    1-0 Salomonsson (Hedström)
    2-0 Andersson (Tärnström)
    2-1 Peltonen (Kallio)
    3-1 Hedström (Påhlsson)

    Saves: Markkanen 17, Lundqvist 19

    A poor game. Finland's line cohesion was worse than that of just about any club team, and Sweden wasn't that much better. The hosts won thanks to higher intensity level(and a bit of luck on the first goals). Puckhandling was horrible, too.

    Lundqvist, Tjärnqvist, Tärnström, Hedström, Jönsson, Pirnes, Hagman and Peltonen deserve and mention.

    A question to the Finns who were watching the YLE feed: Was I the only one totally cracked up by Mertaranta's "commentary" on the hip check on Sjöström?

    Markkanen really was impresive in first period. I wonder how he ever managed to get in NHL. Hopefully tonights was because he is adjusting to bigger rink.

    Summanen put Noronen on the net next time.

    "Piiiiiiikku kakkosen pooosti."

    He started humming a tune of small children's tv show which tells them where they can send mail. :propeller

    He has the weirdest metaphors for situations where players are totally owned. Now he just...crossed the line. I really don't know what he was thinking.

    haha, sounds like a weirdo :) ;)

    BTW, I was hoping to see more of Jarkko Immonen. Will he get good ice-time in the next game or is it too far fetched to think that he could make the team already this season?

    Heck, until the third period I thought Immonen wasn't in the lineup. I hear he was good against Denmark, though, so he should still be in the race. Personally I prefer him to Viuhkola. Aalto and Pakaslahti can only beat him to a clearly designated defensive role. Jokinen has taken one spot, Pirnes and Pirjetä are in the mix and S. Koivu and T. Ruutu may still be coming. Unlike many Finnish centers, Immonen can't really play wing.

    Yeah that one really cracked me up. But which player performed the hip check?

    I'm pretty sure it was Mr. Karalahti. He did not seem to be very found of Fredrik Sjöström in the game :)

    It was Söderholm with the hipcheck as you can also see on the picture on the Aftonbladet site.

    now, here!
    Mertsi is starting to warm up for the WC!

    About the game, it was kinda boring. Niklas Hagman was quite good. I dont blame Markkanen, goals looked kind of easy but still team should have somekind of plann in the game.

    In the interwiev of Summanen after the game he said something like "it looks good, our play is getting better..etc" - off course he´s the coach and thats kinda mumbojumbo he has to bable, but come on..
    The game looked as good as in EHT-tournament in Sweden, of course this was only second game with these players, but still only thing that is getting better is players from NHL..
