"To me, it's like a semifinal game Josh McCown Jersey  and I hate playing Finland in the semifinal game. Every year it seems like we have to and they're always a tough opponent in the semifinals."The semifinal, obviously, we're supposed to be in the gold medal game. If you don't win that game ..."Davidson didn't finish the sentence because to do that at home in front of a building full of fans was unthinkable to her."If we see that tomorrow, it wouldn't because Finland beat us. It would be because we beat ourselves," veteran forward Danielle Goyette said.A win or overtime lo s against Finland and Canada would earn a berth in Tuesday's final (TSN, 8:30 p.m. ET) at MTS Centre.
