Finland had less than an auspicious start in the ice hockey world championship games in Germany.
A decisive 4-1 loss to Denmark (not exactly a hockey powerhouse to say the least) means that the two remaining games in the group stage have quite a bit more importance.
Until Finland got its first medal (a silver) in the Calgary olympics in 1988, the medals chronically avoided us, as Tekno-Kekko’s thorough analysis proves.
Next up: Germany on Monday evening. Germany, who managed to beat USA in their debut game in the tournament, so the bout is by no means a walk in the park.
