The United States is looking for its second gold medal in three years

Ryan Poehling of the Montreal Canadiens has emerged as a leader for the USA team, and he's tied for the tournament lead in points. It's been an impressive run for the USA hockey U20 team, and they're hoping to continue that streak.
Finland has had an up-and-down tournament to this point, with Team USA already notching a decisive 4-1 win back in preliminaries. But that was then and this is now, and Finland is coming off of a huge 6-1 win against the surprising Switzerland.
