    USA is playing SUPER in this third period despite all their penalties. They deserved to win the game, but niitymaki stoned them several times.

    Sad to see USA go home :cry:

    Appeared to have pulled something in the game against Russia. Didn't play more than a minute in the 3rd today.

    Congrats to the Team Finland. Your boys had a better tournament than ours and deserve to advance.

    Good luck in your next game.

    Finns hang on for 4-3 victory, didn't look as crisp as they did in group play, they'll have to step it up if they want to win semifinal.

    Congrats to Finland.

    What a tourney for the U.S. They have bested or equaled hockey's elite in every game, yet lost 4 of the 6 and only won once. Definitely not our year.

    I loved the effort down the stretch, but I'm disappointed as a whole.

    It took Laviolette 5 and 3/4 games to put Drury with Gionta, and we didn't have a great chance until the end of the third...

    Finland played well. If only Team USA played as well in the second and first periods as they did in the third.

    Alas, like the Slovakia, Sweden, and Russia game, it was not to be.

    2010 will be a fun year, though.

    Now to watch Canada lose...
