Finland knocks out Russia

Finland beat the Russians 3-1 Wednesday morning, knocking them out of the quarterfinals and ending their chances of winning a hockey gold medal.

Russian and Soviet teams have won eight gold medals in hockey, but none in the last 22 years.

Teemu Selanne scored a goal in Finland's win and Mikael Granlund and a goal and an assist. Ilya Kovalchuk had the lone goal for Russia and goalie Semyon Varlamov was pulled after giving up three goals.

Finland will play Sweden in the semifinals.
