Going on in Tampere! The current Olympic champions and last year’s world championship winners competed in the Grand Final. He kept the match in suspense until the last. His decision was determined by a golden goal scored in the seventh minute of extra time. Finland won 4: 3, making it possible to be proud of the doubles (Olympic Games and World Cup gold).
Only one goal was scored in the first two periods as both teams played carefully. He won for Canada in the 24th minute through Dylan Goshen, taking advantage of the playing time presence. Maple Leafland hockey players took a 1-0 lead, but they did not sustain modest progress.
The fans experienced tremendous emotions during the third period. In it the Canadians caught some unnecessary penalties and got into trouble. The controversy arose when Swedish referees led the hosts to a 5v3 situation in the snow. Michael Granland immediately scored a draw. 104 seconds later the same player took the lead with a score of 2: 1. It was as if Joel Armia had been knocked out 3-1 in the 55th minute.

Meanwhile, the Canadian team once again showed their mettle. At the last minute, she dragged the goalkeeper to take advantage of the snow. Risk paid off because Zack Whitecloud scored a contact goal in the 58th minute. Defenders of the title repeated the maneuver and 48 seconds later, Max Comtois scored an equalizer. Canada recovered two goals in the final stages of the match, as they did in the quarterfinals against Sweden.
The referees asked for 20 minutes extra time as the tie was reached after 60 minutes. After the regular break, the hockey players went back to the ice, this time to play 3v3, with each goal ending the game, the Canadians made a mistake. Thomas Sabot landed on the penalty bench for hooking and the hosts got an advantage. The Finns played very well and Zachary Manninen scored the winning goal in the sixth minute 42 seconds of extra time.
Finns became world ice hockey champions for the fourth time in history. Their previous wins at this event were 1995, 2011 and 2019. In the final of the tournament in Latvia, Canada defeated Sommei 3-2 in extra time, not repeating the previous year’s victory. Have to wait for the 28th gold.
The national teams of the Czech Republic and the United States provided the best shots for the fans, and they battled for the bronze medals on Sunday afternoon. 40 minutes later, the Americans took a 3: 2 lead, but the third third turned dangerous for our southern neighbors. The Czech players scored six goals and lost only one. Heroes David Bastrick (hat trick) and David Kamp (two goals scored).
The Czech Republic finally won 8: 4 and won the World Championship medal for the first time in 10 years. Hockey players from across the Atlantic will return home without space on stage, but it should be emphasized that for health and personal reasons they only played with four nominal defenders in the knockout stages. The third installment of the Sunday meeting was exhausting.
