Help! Moscow - Helsinki transportation

Hello. We need to get from Moscow to Helsinki to catch our 2:10pm flight for the USA.

Air Baltic has a flight that connects through Riga (25min layover) that will land at 11:37am in Helsinki. I have read some nasty reviews about Air Baltic canceling flights at last minute, losing luggage, etc. Will we need to go through customs in Riga and is this enough time to connect in Riga?

We could take the Lev Tolstoy overnight train that either gets into Helsinki at 11:37am or 12pm (2 different times arrival times have been posted). This may not allow enough time to get to airport on a Friday afternoon.

So what should I do? Should I fly to Helsinki a day earlier (night flight) and spend the night in Helsinki? I really hate to lose any time in Moscow. We will have already spent a day in Helsinki and we will be on 2 other trains (1 day and 1 night train).

Thank you for any advise.
