Finland wins world junior hockey title, beating Sweden 3-2 in overtime

Game winning goal scored by Buffalo Sabres defencemen

Buffalo Sabres defenceman Rasmus Ristolainen scored at 9:42 of overtime to give Finland its third world junior hockey title, 3-2 over Sweden on Sunday.    

Ristolainen picked up the puck along the right boards, cut in front of the goal and slid a backhander under goalie Oscar Dansk's right leg pad. Finland also won the under-20 event in 1987 in Czechoslovakia and 1998 at home in Helsinki.    

Sweden's tied it at 2 on Christian Djoos' power-play goal with 9:07 left in the third period.    

Finland's Era Lindell scored 28 seconds into the game, and Lucas Wallmark tied it on a power play at 7:53 of the second. Finland regained the lead 45 seconds later on Saku Maenalanen's goal.    

In the third-place game, Russia beat Canada 2-1.

    I'm making $86 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbour told me she was averaging $95 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I'm my own boss. This is what I do, www.Best96.com
