1980 Gold Medal Rematch for Bronze Open Thread

Not that anyone who reads this blog needs a reminder, but the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" Americans did not win the gold medal by defeating the Russians. That victory merely got them to the gold medal game. The team they defeated? Today's opponent from Finland. Here's a reminder…

…Finland is going to play a pressure free game as a medal was not a given for them coming in. The Americans are going to have to regroup real quick after yesterday's excruciating loss if they want to save face with a bronze medal.

…today will also be Teemu Selanne's final game as a member of Team Finland, so don't think his teammates aren't going to have a little extra juice trying to make sure he goes out with a medal.
