The final game in Group B is a matchup of the two best teams in the group when Canada faces Finland. The Blackhawks contingent for team Canada has been relatively quiet with Patrick Sharp going scoreless in one game, Duncan Keith picking up an assist in 2 games, and Jonathan Toews picking up an assist in both games.
Patrick Sharp was scratched from Game #2, but is reported to be back in the lineup. Toews has played solid but neither himself or Sidney Crosby have taken over this Olympic Games and by looking at the scoreboards they really haven’t needed to but this game Canada will need their two biggest stars to bring their A Game.
The winner gets a bye into the quarterfinals and one less game on the road to the gold medal. The Finnish team is led by Tuukka Rask but the surprising thing in the tournament is how well they have put pucks in the back of the net. They did suffer a big loss with Barkov leaving the Olympics with an injured knee, but this should be an exciting game with everything at stake for Group B.
