Today's Karjala Cup Scores

Czech Republic 3 @ Russia 4
Vasily Koshechkin, Russia, Win, 31/34, 2.90 GAA, .912 sv%

Koshechkin didn't hurt his Olympics stock in this leg of the Euro Tour going 2-0 in both of his starts in this tournament. He finished the Karjala Cup with a 2.83 GAA and .921 sv%.

Finland 7 @ Sweden 0
Johan Harju, Sweden, 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 0 SOG

That's an embarassing finish for Team Sweden against their neighbors and rivals, the Finns. Sweden finished second to last at 1-2-0 in the Karjala Cup, and Harju was scoreless in three games, which definitely does hurt his Olympics stock.
