US Downs Finland, Into World Semis

I’m a day late on this, but with finals coming up and the NHL playoffs getting into full swing (not to mention the Scrubs series finale) I’ve had a lot on my plate lately.

For the first time since 2004, the United States will have a shot at a medal in the World Championships after defeating pesky Finland 3-2.  In the last 8 meetings between the two countries, the United States had gone 0-7-1. Robert Esche stopped 47 of 49 shots and was named the Americans player of the game. Dustin Brown, TJ Oshie (North Dakota) and Ryan Suter (Wisconsin) scored for the United States

The US will take on Russia in the semifinal round.
