Finland might have won their first game of the 2014 Winter Olympics men’s ice hockey tournament, but they still have a little something to prove when they take on Norway in just a few hours. While the Finns won their first game against Austria, they allowed four goals against a team that isn’t considered all that strong.
For a squad with medal aspirations like Finland, they can’t be allowing four goals in a contest against what is clearly an inferior lineup. They’ll have a chance to get to 2-0 in a more impressive and defensive fashion against Norway. The Norwegians only feature one NHLer in Mats Zuccarello, but they don’t roll over easily.
They put up an outstanding fight against Canada in their first game, and will try to play a similarly opportunistic game against the Finns. If you’re looking for viewing information, you’re in the right place.
