Sorry Olli - Nice Finnish Guys (can't) Last

Team USA rolled over Olli Jokinen's Finland team - taking a 4-0 lead in the first period and never looking back. They built a 6-0 lead midway through the period and the US gave their goalie - Miller - who had been perfect - the rest of the night off. The Finns got one goal back for pride and will play tonight for the Bronze medal in the game my son is calling the."Chumpionship"

Its great news for Chris Drury, Ryan Callahan and assistant coach John Tortorella. I hope John is learning something these olympics - seeing Dru and Cally playing so well under a different head coach.

Marian Gaborik's team (Slovakia) got 2 third period goals but couldn't catch Team Canada - losing 3-2. No goals for Gaborik.

So two more Rangers are out of the running for the gold. Gabby and Olli will play late tonight as Finland and Slovakia will play for the Bronze medal. Either way - the Slovaks must be happy to have lasted longer in the tournament than their rivals the Czechs.
