Oettinger and Farrance lead US past Finland in WJSS; Harper and Tkachuk add assists

Incoming BU freshman David Farrance had a highlight-reel, end-to-end power play goal at the 13:50 mark of the third period to give Team USA a come-from-behind 4-3 win over Team Finland in the World Junior Summer Showcase on Friday afternoon at the USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth Township, Michigan.  Classmate Brady Tkachuk assisted on the first goal of the game (at 3:46 of the first period) and rising sophomore Patrick Harper assisted on the game-tying goal with a centering pass halfway through the third.  Terrier goalie Jake Oettinger earned the win by stopping 37 of 40 shots.  In the final game of the WJSS, Team USA will return to action on Saturday night at 7pm ET to face  Team Canada.
