FINLAND UPSETS RUSSIA IN MEN’S HOCKEY QUARTERFINALS

Finland eliminated Russia from the Olympic men’s hockey tournament with a 3-1 victory Wednesday, putting a stunning end to the Russians’ enormous expectations at home.

Teemu Selanne scored an early goal and Tuukka Rask made 37 saves as Finland crushed the Russians’ dreams of winning hockey gold medals in front of their own fans. Russian teams have won eight gold medals in hockey, but none in the last 22 years.
