"You want to keep getting better as the tournament moves on, and I think they've been able to do that, " Finland captain Valtteri Filppula said of Slovakia, per Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press. "Last game they played really great. So, it's going to be a tough game. "Slovakia became the first team to beat the United States at the 2022 Winter Games. Will its recent momentum be enough for it to also become the first team to defeat Finland? There's a good chance that this game will be more competitive than the first meeting between the two teams in Beijing, but it would still be a surprise if the Slovaks can knock off the Finns.

Finland vs Slovakia – Group Stage – Preview & Prediction
The previously unbeaten U. S. was heavily favored to advance, but Slovakia showed its resilience. After killing three penalties in the third period, Marek Hrivik scored the game-tying goal for the Slovaks with 44 seconds to go to send the game to overtime. After scoreless three-on-three hockey, Peter Cehlarik netted the lone goal of the five-round shootout to send Slovakia to the semifinals. Although Finland has already beaten Slovakia during these Games, the semifinal matchup could be a much different contest. The Finns will know not to underestimate the Slovaks, who are playing much better than they were earlier in the Olympics.

The teams were both part of Group C and faced off Feb. 10. Finland won 6-2. In that meeting, Slovakia took a 1-0 lead when Juraj Slafkovsky scored a little more than five minutes into the contest. However, Finland had a 3-1 advantage by the end of the first period, and it went on to win behind a hat trick from Sakari Manninen and two goals from Miro Aaltonen. That was the start of what has been an impressive showing by Finland in Beijing. It also defeated Latvia and Sweden during the preliminary round and then routed Switzerland 5-1 in the quarterfinals. Finland has never won an Olympic gold medal in men's hockey, but it has captured two silvers and four bronzes. Its most recent medal-winning performance came at the 2014 Winter Games, when it defeated the United States in the bronze-medal game.
While they lost to the superpowers of the United States and Canada in the group stage, the Swedes played hard, losing just 6-3 to the U. S. and 4-2 to the Canadians. Their big 6-1 win over their rivals, Finland, helped give Sweden finish third in Group A, and is a favorite at making it to the semifinals for the second tournament in a row. While they are underdogs coming into Thursday, Slovakia deserves a lot of credit. They possess two of the best goal scorers in the tournament, as Nela Lopusanova (6) and Zuzana Dobiasova (5) sit first and third in goals thus far, respectively. The 14-year-old Lopusanova leads the tournament with nine points through three games. In just their third appearance at the WW18, Slovakia ended up with a 2-1 record, good for second in Group B, and is looking to make it to the final four for the first time.
