U.S. burned by goal through net
A controversial goal by Ville Koistinen sparked a huge comeback as Team Finland rallied with three unanswered goals in the third period to edge the United States 3-2 in the qualifying round at the 2008 IIHF World Championship.I'll say it was controversial — the puck went through the side of the net. USA coach John Tortorella looked like he was about to blow his stack afterwards.
"I'm suggesting blindness," the coach said when asked to explain the officials' error.
"What a joke. It's a joke."
There's video highlights of the game available on TSN's site.
