The two teams played each other in one game, which Day's team won. Day and Puljujarvi scored two goals apiece.
I watched some of the action yesterday. Puljujärvi shot the puck a lot, many of his chances came from counter-attacks where he was able to use his speed and reach effectively to challenge defensemen.
No uber standouts among defensemen, but Olli Juolevi was perhaps slightly more impressive than Tarmo Reunanen or Urho Vaakanainen. I especially liked his play during the 3-on-3 overtime.
I watched Sean Day's team for only a while, but he looked very similar to those TSN highlight clips. A big body with excellent skating and puck handling.
