1 Soviet Union

I’m thoroughly confused. I thought for sure it was Finland as that is who the USA beat to win the gold. In looking at the final standings USSR was second and Finland 4th. Why wasn’t Finland second place since they lost the gold medal game???


IIRC the medal round crossover games from the other pool, not single elimination. They were playing Finland on Sunday regardless of how they did against the USSR on Friday. A loss to Finland either dropped them to bronze or possibly out of the money.
