Against the Finns, Adam Gaudette of the Senators scored with an extra attacker on the ice for the U.S. to make it a 4-3 game with 2:51 remaining. Despite continued pressure in the offensive zone, the Americans couldn't get the equalizer, though.
Finland took the lead for the first time early in the second period on a goal from Sakari Manninen. Sean Farrell of Harvard tied it a little more than two minutes later, but Finland went ahead for good on a goal by Sami Vatanen, who plays professionally in Switzerland, at 9:40 of the second period.
The Czech Republic lost to Canada 6-1 in the other semifinal.
Gaudette's five goals lead the Americans and he shares the team lead with Avalanche forward Ben Meyers with seven points. Jeremy Swayman of the Bruins allowed three goals on 26 shots in the loss.
