"Our Game", a colloquial term for the Finnish game plan under Jalonen. Refers to the plan alone, not the whole sport like it means when Canadians talk about it.

No need to chance tactics. We need to skate, hit, play with intensity and not make stupid penalties. It's really that simple. We have talent to beat USA. And a good game from Vehanen is a must.

Give them second line some shokakola or something, we can't win USA with one good line

Change of tactics is crucial if we want to beat USA. USA's forecheck eats us alive if we we play the puck backwards on our d-zone as much as we did in the first game. Also it's widely recognised that Jalonen's idea of playing defense is man versus man which gets us screwed. Our physically weak defenders cant battle against big bodies.

Well, in all honesty the first 30 mins against Canada - a more physical team than the US - were not too bad. But I admit that "Meidän Peli" (such a silly term) is surely harder to keep intense and tight enough against the North Americans than our good, straightforward old style. (I'm not an expert, and Jalonen coached us to world championship, but I just miss that fighting style...)
