Again, it's not the refs doing this or that.
It's FIN not scoring enough. Simple.

Fiasco.

Big disappointment, but maybe a necessary
slap on the face of the FIN hockey federation.

Congrats to CZE for the bronze.

Finns complain about bad referees and that is your example why these referees are good? Don't get it.

And the chase ends to a missed shot by Finland's supposedly third best player.

What in the name of all that is holy was Immonen doing there for the last seconds? Terrible Jalonen, just terrible.

Agreed 100 %. We had all the chances in the world to tie it. Where were the top chances? We controlled the game but couldn't break the Czech's defense.

edit: The refereeing was bad throughout the tournament and it will be again next year. It's not the first time Bulanov has put his whistle in the pocket. We've benefited from it at times too. The refs were favourable for us in the first couple of games.

Wow, what a joke of a commentator Mertaranta is. I can tolerate a slight bias, but crying for a penalty whenever a Finnish player is touched is irritating.

Congrats to CZE on bronze.

I hope Jalonen gives it to the refs in the postgame interview. I'm not going to even congratulate the Czechs after that goon fest.

What a boring game. Czechs play for one period and then just defend for 2 periods. Why did the refs get rewarded? Worst refs of the tourn?

Cross checking to face = penalty for Czechs
Accidently pushing the stick from player's hand = penalty for Finns

Great to come away from this tournament with a win. I don't remember the last time we medalled three times in three consecutive years since the 1999-2001 golden hattrick.

Jalonen must have been brainwashed after he took that job. He used to be so direct and open to say his mind in the interviews when he was still coaching in the FEL.

The Czechs scored lucky goals and the refs missed a ****load of Czech penalties. Yeah, I'm being a sore loser but I'm also just being honest.

Finland controlled the game but should have finished better. Gongratz Czechs.

I wouldn't blame Jalonen. His tactic breaks if he breaks the lines. Sure that is just a bad tactic then, but I think the tactic is designed for those lines. But Granlund should have been in first line for a long time.
