Olympics: U.S. Men's Hockey Shut Out Again, Dutch Set Speed Skating Records

In another tough loss for U.S. men's hockey, Finland shut the team out 5-0 to take the bronze medal in Sochi Saturday.

After a scoreless first period, Finland's Teemu Selanne and Jussi Jokinen scored back-to-back early on in the second. The Finns then ran away with the game, netting three more in the third. Finland's win marks the fifth hockey medal in the last six Olympics for the country. The U.S., meanwhile, ended up in a disappointing fourth place, failing to score a goal for the second game in a row after scoring 20 in its first four games.
