Ugh, that start time for the good guys means I gotta get a nap in and then hope for no OT afterwards.

That didn't take long for Finland to take the lead.
1st minute goal.
1-0

Slovakia's Skora gets a 5 minute major and game misconduct for sticking out a knee and for knee on knee contact.

Finally get to tune in, LAT/CZE is just starting the 3rd.  The Latvians have the Dreaded Lead, 4-2.

PENALTY SHOT!  Latvians called for covering the puck in the crease.

Denied, Latvian goalie makes it look easy.

Czech goalie said fark it and left.

Empty netter makes it 5-2 Latvia with 1:19 left.

And with that win, Latvia not only qualifies for the quarter-finals, they vault over Czechia to finish 3rd in the group.

I'm not trying to suggest the Latvians did not deserve their win today, but I wonder how hard the Czechs tried to win knowing they are already locked into third place in group A and a regulation loss would eliminate Slovakia.
 
2022-08-14 8:41:41 PM  
Perhaps I spoke too soon. It looks like, with the win, LAT is now in third place and CZE is 4th. Both have 4 points and will both play a quarter-final game this coming week.

Boarding penalty on Sweden.  Downgraded from a major to a minor on review.

Dread and a half off the turn over.
3-0

Almost a Super Dreadnought Lead for Team USA.
 
2022-08-15 12:18:28 AM  
Back to the dreaded lead.
Shot hit the glove, but couldn't hold on to it and into the net.
3-1
 
2022-08-15 12:18:35 AM  
So much for the shutout.  USA goalie can't catch the shot cleanly with his glove and basically muffs it into his own net.  3-1 America.

USA lead cut to 1, 3-2 America with just over a minute left.

That got a lot more exciting than I would have liked towards the end, but USA holds on to win.  3-2 final.
