Two very different games played on during the semi-finals of the 2014 World Junior Championship. The first game of the day pitted Sweden against Russia, while the second featured Canada facing off against Finland.
The second quarterfinal contest taking place on Thursday at the 2014 World Junior Championship features Finland facing off against the Czech Republic. Finland was probably the more accomplished of the two teams during the preliminary round, but not by so wide a margin that a Czech victory is unthinkable.
After competing with a more experienced squad at last year's World Junior Championship, a performance that featured decidedly more offense than one might expect from Finland, the Finns entered the 2014 WJC in Malmo, Sweden with a squad that is largely getting their feet wet at the Under-20 level.
