    Finland has to win this. I need my bragging rights in our family. I'm moving to Canada shortly, and I'd like to go in as a winner :help:

    Canada is better than Russia, but it will be a different game from todays game. Finland is far better than the team sweden they had to fight today. I am expecting shots to be pretty even this time, and puck possession too. It comes down to goalies and shot quality. We have the better goalie, they have the better shot quality. It's gonna be one tough battle between two physical teams.

    Great final! :yo:

    It isn't surprising at all, that the two semifinal teams with the most NHLers, meet in the final.

    Canada will take this, IMO.

    I agree. Finland is my favorite Euro country. So if Canada doesn't win Gold tomorrow I won't be too disappointed.

    I'm sure this game means a lot to Finland. They deserve to win a big tournament. I felt so bad for you guys losing the Gold medal to Sweden at the Turin Olympics.

    I'm thanking the hockey god's that this final matchup of my dreams came true.

    I'm just so happy we won't have to face the Swedes, and have our hearts broken, again.:phew:

    I love Canadian hockey almost as much as finnish.

    It so nice to be able to watch a great final without having to be a nervous wreck since whoever wins will be a worthy winner imo.

    If there is one team you can lose a final to, it's Canada.

    If Canada wins then things are like they should, since I believe hockey is Canada's game.

    Yeah, it sucks to lose against Sweden, but if Canada wins I'll be happy for them. I just hope Finland manages to make this a good game.

    It´s 7.15pm in Finland, so eastern time would be...12.15pm?

    This thread has turned sooo gay! Well, it´s never a shame to lose against Canada. Then again, Finland has quite dark history, eight times in tournament finals - and only one win: Lost Turin 2006, World Cup 2004...won WC-final 1995 - but lost 1992, 1994, 1998, 1999, 2001...

    So it would be time to re-write the history. It´s going to be a tight game -hopefully. Guess we are underdogs, again, but perhaps this time Team Finland can win that last, final game. Semifinal win against Russia and getting to the finals was a small surprise, but why stop now?

    Oh god, so am I. I am tired of the Tom Jones track too, and the guy in the chefs hat with a SUOMI banner in his hand. I am tired of Heksi Riihiranta, experienced player CRYING on the bench.

    Hopefully, it will be a great game, with clean hits, scoring chances and that Finland win the 2nd title after 1995.

    Statistically, Finland is slighty better on the goalie postition but this doesn't mean anything. K. Lehtonen will hopefully play as he did against Russia.

    I'm rather pessimistic but I was wrong already twice, so I hope to be wrong again and Finland wins!
