Today Team Finland and Team USA held an exhibition match in Helsinki in advance of the IIHF World Championships in St. Petersburg, Russia, to give coach Kari Jalonen a good look at the capability of his team before the games begin on May 6. Lucky for him he had Uncle Leo -- Finland won the match 3-2 on the strength of Komarov's goal.

Team Finland's other two goals were from Teemu Pulkkinen, with Team USA goals scored by JT Compher (Colorado prospect), and Jordan Schroeder (Minnesota prospect).

If you wonder whether Auston Matthews made it to the score sheet, he did, picking up an assist on one of the US goals.

Auston Matthews (Ranked No. 1) and Sebastian Aho (CAR) each pick up assists on their respective team's goal. This is an exhibition game BTW
