We don't even get his awesome over-the-top-ness or Panger's upbeat attitude any more.
TSN sucks.

Didn't expect this kind of domination. Hopefully won't stop playing completely in the next two periods.

If Finns come out all defensive next period, I have to start drinking even faster.

Looks like the 2-0 goal was scored right after an offside.

According to 'international' (English) broadcast Kontiola (stated after other several times repeated praises) has "a wizard's stick" and is "the Harry Potter" of the Finnish team

That's 9 periods without a goal against Finland. Ridiculous.

Does any NHL team own Kontiola's rights or would he be a FA if he came to the NHL?

He would be a FA but I think he has a KHL contract for 2 more years or so

That's as close as it can get but it's not offside.

If the puck is on the paint and Aaltonen's skate doesn't leave it before the puck gets there then it's not offside. The heel of his skate is still there

Watch the Finns start protecting their lead with turtle defense with 40 to go only to lose in overtime.

No one should have his rights, Hawks drafted him many many years ago

He has KHL contract and has stated in an interview that he is happy with playing in KHL and isn't that interested in NHL anymore

My God Slovakia's terrible. Awful defense and goaltending. Just awful. Finland's 1st line isn't even playing well so far in this game.

Yep, that's not offside.

Good stuff for the first 15 minutes, but the 2nd PP was abysmal. We looked way too passive towards the end, and almost got punished for it. Also, I don't know if it's the D or Raanta not trusting them, but he doesn't seem to have any chemistry with them at all.

What I hope for is a quick goal to start the 2nd, to really break the Slovaks' back. After that, a solid effort should get us into the semis.

Crash, bang and wallop!

And Finland are throu' to he semifinals already after one period?

Well, anyway, Slovakia are in serious trouble 0-3 down.

Finland play tight as hell, and Finland have a big lead. And will they play like this the whole rest of the game - Finland will massacre Slovakia totally!

First period first stars:

Petri Kontiola (a real hockey-animal!) and Mikael Granlund ... coz sweet Jesus, that is a real good (God?) hockey guy!

And yes, Antti Raanta - the goalie - for the last save!. If not so Slovakia would (maybe) be still in the game ... or probably not!

Doesn't Anaheim still hold Kontiola's rights.

I remember him being stuck in Chicago on a very deep roster.

IIRC when the Duck's got him and wanted him to play in Iowa he got fed up and showed a poor attitude and bolted for the KHL.

I'm pretty darn sure that when the puck is not in the offensive and the player is, it is an offside. Meh, could be wrong.

But it was so close that you can't blame the refs on that one.

The puck belongs to the zone it came from IIRC, so yeah, it's probably offside. Very, very close though.
