A Russian team is looking to repeat as Olympic champion in men’s hockey when it meets Finland in Sunday’s gold medal match, the final game of the Beijing Olympics.
Team Russia advanced to Sunday’s final by beating Sweden in an exhausting semi-final on Friday included a 17-shot penalty shootout. Finland, now guaranteed to at least match their best performance in Olympic history, beat Slovakia 2-0.
The women’s hockey tournament ended on Thursday, when Canada beat the US.
