The Finnish team showed great strength

One of the favourites in this year’s Championship has introduced themselves. Finland had no problem defeating Germany in Scandinavium when group A started their matches. The final result was 2-9 (1-3, 0-2, 1-4).

Slightly more than 2 000 spectators kept the stands going. Finland did the same, with defender Risto Tolliko. Tolliko answered for three assists before the end of the first period. Two of them were to Rickie Hyvarinen and the Finnish team scored 3-0 before Dominic Mucha, one half of the talented twins in the German team, was able to reduce the score through a free hit.

In the second period the Finnish team continued to hold onto the ball and the German team tried, with the few chances they had, to challenge with fast breaks.

Mikael Lax increased the lead to 1-4 and Nico Salo scored the fifth goal after a beautiful roll up. At this time Phillippe Soutter, the coach of the German team, took time-out and got to see his team make a comeback before the third period.

However, it did not last long. After only 21 seconds of the last period the Finnish team got a penalty shot. Janek Kohler made a nice save but in the following power play the Finnish team immediately scored 6-1.

Tino von Pritzbuer scored a consolation goal for Germany and the Finnish team had time for another couple of goals in the game that ended 2-9.
