Teemu Selanne scored two goals and Tuukka Rask had a 26-save shutout, helping Finland rout the United States 5-0 Saturday to win hockey bronze at the Sochi Games.
    
Selanne, a 43-year-old, six-time Olympian, and Jussi Jokinen scored 11 seconds apart early in the second period. The Finns scored three goals in the third period against a team that looked like it would rather be at home.
    
Finland has won four medals in the last five Olympics, more than any other nation in the NHL era.
    
Before the third-place match became a rout in the final period, it was a game of missed opportunities for the Americans.
    
Patrick Kane couldn't convert on a penalty shot in each of the first two periods for the U.S.
