Game report

The first opportunity to score came to Swiss account when at the beginning of the 5th minute Reymondin got on a breakway but his shot after a good deke hit the crossbar. He did not have to regret it for long because after 2 minutes Gil Reymonds opened the score as he did not give Lehtinen any chance to save. Swiss players tested themselves by getting 3 minor penalties in less than 2 minutes but they killed all of them so they earned their lead even better.

But the 2nd period belonged to their opponents. Firstly, it was Aleksi Anttalainen who made the game tied in the 24th minute and the Finnish joy spread again in the middle of the game as Moilanen found precisely Linus Nyman alone in front of Swiss net.

The beginning of the last period worked better for Team Switzerland because only after 5 seconds (yes, only 5 seconds) Nicolas Müller did not overthink the situation after the opening face-off, skated on left wink and fired precisely. Finnish players found their way to the lead again in the 45th minute as Lauri Pajuniemi took an advantage of Messerli’s mistake. The lead was doubled few moments later thanks to Linus Nyman who was forgotten by Swiss defense and had no troubles to beat Messerli who substituted Zaetta in Swiss net in the 38th minute.

Team Switzerland only cut the lead by Nico Hischier and his great one timer from the right circle but Finnish players had he game under control, so they could celebrate their 4:3 victory!
