    3-1 Finland.

    Komarov will be replaced by rotating wingers. Lassila will start the game.

    Will definitely be a tougher game then vs Denmark. Lassila is going to have to be good if we want to win clearly, since Latvia seems to be basing its offense on breakaways and fast counterattacks, meaning a lot of odd-man rushes for Lassila to handle. I guess in that way he's better suited for the task then Vehanen (Hybrid vs butterfly).

    Latvia also played very physically against Czech, so Komarov would have been much appreciated in this game. Also Finland will effectively be playing with 3 attack lines, since rotating the liner on the 4th will mean its not as effective as usual. On the other hand, Jalonen forces all his players to learn the same playbook, so the loss is not as bad as it would be in other teams with highly role-playing lines. Also, Jalonen gets to use this as an opportunity to try out some different 4th line configurations, maybe find some new combinations for the future.

    Finland wins 3-1, but if it goes OT it's anyone's game.

    After the game of Latvia against the Czechs, I think it will be hard work for Finland.
    I predict a close win may be 3-1 or 3-2 something like that.

    I hope the Finnish goalie is in form.

    Btw, will Komarov be able to play again in this tournament or is it over for him due to his injury?

    He is day to day. The wound has healed very well. He should be in the lineup in the czech-game.

    Last I heard, he's going to miss the Czech game. You making an educated guess or did they give an update on his status?

    edit. Nevermind, found the update =)

    Go Granlund!

    well, as predicted, Finns are quick - we try to catch them.
    Doesnt look like this is going to be close, but we'll see.

    Granlund is clearly a player for this level.

    Kukkonen however...
