We will have quite an extensive representation, even Germany and Czechia have Finnish head coaches, Toni Söderholm and Kari Jalonen, respectively. Due to the situation in Ukraine, ROC (Russia) and Belarus are replaced by Austria and France. Here are the games, at least for this weekend, the results are going to be updated. Group A and part of the quarter-finals will play in Helsinki, while Group B, part of the quarter-finals, semifinals, bronze game and the final game will take place in another city, Tampere.

    Don't forget Blademaster's Canada smiley.

    We beat the Norwegians, Canada won the game against Germany, and congrats USA as well. Today, my dear neighbour Sweden will face Austria and Latvia is our opponent. It's nice to begin a tournament with a victory.

    Woot, Austria beat the Czech. That's one for the history books. First win against a top team since a 3 - 0 against the US in 2001.

    That was cool. IIRC, Kari Jalonen faced a lot of critique back when he was Finland's head coach.

    My namesake Mikael Granlund is an awesome NHL reinforcement, he played a big role already in his first game. We Finns are really looking forward to the game against Sweden. Although some people may be even too excited.

    Canada looking strong again, same with the Czech. Also, seems like Switzerland is finally faltering.

    We won! That was an exciting game. Both Olympic Gold Medal and World Championship Gold Medal on the same year.
