Finland Form 

Finland have made it to the World Championship Final for the second year in a row.

Last year they were narrowly beaten by Canada, so this time they will be looking for some revenge.

The Finns have won eight games and lost one by shootout on their way to this showdown with the defending champions..

They opened the tournament with a three-game win streak that saw them rout Norway 5-0, beat Latvia 2-0 and down the United States 4-1.

Their run was halted by a shootout a defeat to Sweden, but they have not dropped a game since then.

Finland hit back with a 6-0 demolition of Great Britain, and then registered back-to-back 3-0 wins against Austria and the Czech Republic.

They then beat Slovakia 4-2 in the quarter-finals before earning a 4-3 win over the USA in the semi-finals.

Canada Form

Defending champions Canada are one win away from back-to-back World Championships.

They will be looking for a repeat of the 2021 Final when they beat Finland to lift the trophy.

The Maple Leafs began the tournament with a couple of convincing wins, beating Italy 6-1 and Slovakia 5-1.

They then overcame some early scares to beat Kazakhstan 6-3, and repeated that score in their next outing as they downed Switzerland.

Their first defeat of the tournament came after that, as they lost 3-2 to Denmark, but that would prove to be their only loss.

They responded to that loss in the final group game with a 7-1 beatdown of France, before edging Sweden 4-3 in overtime in a tough quarter-final.

Canada then came storming back from 1-0 down to crush the Czech Republic 6-1 in the semi-finals.
