A Maverick's getting a medal

The U.S. and Canada will play each other for the gold medal in women's hockey. In the bronze-medal game, however, it will be Finland vs. Sweden, which means a Minnesota State player -- Nina Tikkinen or Emilia Andersson -- will be getting an Olympic medal. They will play each other at 1 p.m. (CST) on Thursday.

Tikkinen, who played for the Mavericks this season before heading to Vancouver, has two goals in four games. She has also played the fourth-most minutes for Finland.

Andersson, who took a year off from MSU to play for Sweden and will return next fall, has one assist and two penalty minutes in four games. She ranks fifth on her team in minutes played.

Just saw Nina receive her bronze medal after a VERY well played USA/CAN Gold Medal Game.

Congratulations to Nina. Job well done!
