CSM play-offs

Pulkkinen played in juniorC today and his great individual effort helped Jokerit to the finals:
Jokerit - Ilves (9 - 4)
PULKKINEN Teemu 5g+2a=7p

-> Jokerit will face Kärpät in the finals.

Well he is racking up ~3ppg in playoffs against most of best 2y older players than he is. So 7points against those who are same age isn't so surprising. Yes, it's really good, but still not too surprising. There is reason why he is playing against ~2y older players. Same as there is reason why Rajala is playing in A-juniors, etc.

B-junior finals soon and then we'll see if he will get invite to U-18 WJC camp.

I hope he gets a chance to play in the U-18 WJC. Seems like he's just getting better as the playoffs go along for him

Me 2. But I wouldn't bet on it. He hasn't played any games with U-18 this season and coach have stated there will be most likely 3-4 underages(one will be most likely Rajala and two others prolly Kivistö&Manelius). And as addition there hasn't been too many 2y youngers in U-18 WJC ever from Finland.

And as addition to my last post. Not putting Pulkkinen's performance down, but it should be obvious top talents can rack up huge numbers in their own agegroup in finnish junior leagues. The skill difference is just huge between top end talents. I once played against guy(back then kid) whos NHL stats are ~0.75PPG and he did put something like 10 goals against us. And our team were still top-10 finnish team in that age group. We won 6-0 against couple of year older dannish national team, etc. Just to point out the difference between NHL talent(which Pulkkinen clearly is) and "normal top age player"-class.

Who was the player who put in 10 goals?

Hmm. The Junior B finals are this weekend. With HIFK likely out of the SM-liiga playoffs, I'll probably have some time to go see Jokerti-HPK on Friday and the possible second game on Monday... Now I'm almost hoping HIFK loses today so I don't have to go watch them on Friday (and suffer) and instead get to see Pulkkinen.

EDIT: The Junior C finals start on the same day at the same place, and Kärpät are in the finals there against Jokerit. I wonder if Granlund and Donskoi will play for them there... Would be great to see them while I'm at it.

Sorry, missed it. Had other things to do. Or to be honest, I was too hung over.

BSM Playoffs:
HPK - Jokerit (1 - 6)
Pulkkinen(1+1)
-> Jokerit are the champions -> Pulkkinen was the best scorer in the playoffs 6gp 11g+6a=17p

CSM playoffs:

21.03.2008 Jokerit - Kärpät 5 - 6 OT
23.03.2008 Kärpät - Jokerit 6 - 5
Granlund(3+1) and Donskoi(1+2) played in this game.
-> Kärpät has two wins, but Pulkkinen is available for Jokerit in the following games, so this will get interesting.

26.03.2008 18:00 Pirkkola Jokerit - Kärpät
if needed:
(29.03.2008 13:30 Raksila Kärpät - Jokerit)
(30.03.2008 14:30 Pirkkola Jokerit - Kärpät)

I found a video of Granlund's second goal in today's game from a another forum:
http://ifile.it/f4n5o9q (better quality)

A short article about Pulkkinen in Finnish that was linked in Jatkoaika:
http://hameensanomat.fi/Article.jsp?...=70208&main=49

Some quotes from Pulkkinen:
- Winning the championship is the biggest thing why we play hockey. Winning the scoring race don't mean anything.
- My dream is to play hockey as a pro. Keep working one day at a time. Results will eventually come if they are about to.
- You have to keep your head cool. You must look for easy/calm passing opportunities and keep playing in a calm way. When you keep on looking for passing opportunities, they will eventually show up. I practice hard and work as hard as possible.
- In NHL Russian aces Ovechkin and Kovaltchuk are brilliant goal scorers. Russian stars Malkin and Kovalev are also great with the puck. They are my idols.

I like the mature attitude he seems to have.

Funny how the "has nor grasp of reality" Kalervo Kummola seems to know about the "Pulkkinens, Rajalas and Granlunds" yet the "country's leading hockey analyst" does not know who Teemu Pulkkinen is...

Well, it's Sihvonen. I wouldn't have cared about his opinion anyway. In fact, I don't even understand why someone would ask him a question like that. Or ask anyone for that matter, but especially Sihvonen.

Tonights match was a Mikael Grandlund show, he did it all: hits, scores, passes. In one penalty kill he held the puck for 30 seconds or so. He also made some really nice passes to open teammates, and almost everytime he rushed the puck over the jokerit blueline a good scoring chance would follow.

Donskoi impressed much more than in B-teams semifinal.

It wasnt Pulkkinen's best day, tried maybe too much himself, didint receive much quality passes from teammates and the puck just wouldnt go in today.

Kärpät's first defensive pair Tomety and Jansson looked good.

Overall Jokerit defence seemed to be really lost sometimes and Kärpät were better in all aspects of the game.
