Finland Wins 2014 World Juniors Championship

From IIHF.com:

Rasmus Ristolainen scored at 9:42 of overtime to lift Finland to an unforgettable 3-2 win over host Sweden in the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship on Sunday.

Captain Teuvo Teräväinen put the puck around the boards to Ristolainen, who powered down the right side, beating Swedish defenceman Robert Hägg as he cut to the net and put a backhand deke underneath sprawling netminder Oscar Dansk.

"I saw that they played man-on-man defence in their own end," said Ristolainen. "It was empty in front of the net. I just skated there. I tried just to put the puck somewhere hard and it went in."
