May 26, 2019
Finland are the 2019 World Champions after a stunning victory against team Canada in the final. The gold is Finland’s first at the tournament since 2011, a win that also came in Bratislava, Slovakia.
The score in the final match was opened in the middle of the first period by Canada’s Shea Theodore. However, Finland’s Marko Anttila answered with a goal in the middle period to tie the score and netted another puck in the following period. His team mate Harri Pesonen upped the score to 3-1 with five minutes remaining of the match.
The Finnish ice hockey team is now the three-time World Champion (1995, 2011, 2019) in addition to its eight silver and three bronze medals won previously at the IIHF World Championships.
