Finland Vs U.S. - Semifinal

This could be a great semi-final matchup or it could be a trapfest, either way it's win or go home for both teams when they faceoff in St. Paul(4pm pst, CBC & CBC Radio One).

The key for the Americans should be staying out of the penalty box and maintaining their focus. The key for the Finns will be to keep the game close while frustrating the Americans, in particular Keith Tkachuk and Doug Weight. In net, Kiprusoff can expect a lot of traffic as the Americans are going to be going after him at every opportunity.

So you want a prediction? How about this one, whoever scores first will win ;). That's a bold prediction considering the bizarre stat of the winning team scoring first in almost every world cup game. The Americans will probably win this game but I think it will be close, how's that?

Here's a preview from CBC
