2012 IIHF World Championship
USA Eliminated from World Championships on Late Goal
Finland 3, USA 2

Jesse Joensuu scored his second goal of the night with nine seconds remaining in the game as Finland beat Team USA 3-2 to advance to the semi-final against Russia on Saturday afternoon (14:30).

Cheered on by the home crowd, Finland rallied back from 2-1. Jesse Joensuu scored his second of the night off a nice feed from Petri Kontiola from behind the net, to win the game for Finland, 3-2, with just 8.8 seconds remaining in the game.

Petri Vehanen made 24 saves for Finland.

"I've watched the World Championships on TV for 18 years, and to be here now is fantastic, but I try to not think about it too much, and just focus on my work here," said Joensuu whose first goal in the game was also his first in the national team.

"When we were down by a goal in the third period, I top line came through. It looked like no other line couldn't score, so fortunately they did," Joensuu said.
