The United States hockey team lost for the 2nd consecutive game to Finland and have been knocked out of the World Hockey Championships. The US was losing 2-0 late in the 3rd period before they got goals from Kessel and Stafford less than 40 seconds apart, but wound up losing in overtime on a goal by Lepisto.
Overall, the US was one of the strongest teams but a lack of goaltending and a subpar defensive unit contributed to their demise. On a bright note for the US, was that this was a very young team with far less big stars than teams like Russia and Canada. The US lost to Canada 5-4 on a late goal and lost twice to Finland 3-2.
Russia will play Finland and Canada will play Sweden in the semi-finals in the World Hockey Championships.
