Not even some inside information from Olympic teammate Zach Parise could stop T.J. Oshie in a shootout.
There was plenty of post-Olympic rust to go around, but none seemed to stick to Darcy Kuemper.
Alex Ovechkin, Pavel Datsyuk and their teammates had nursed dreams about this week for several years. They were all dashed in 60 frustrating minutes.
The home team is out of the Olympic men's hockey tournament.
Right from the start of the tournament, the only way to envision the Russians winning a gold medal in hockey was to close both eyes and keep them shut.
The Russians dutifully shook the Finns' hands and then skated to the center of a rink built to showcase their return to Olympic hockey dominance. When they raised their sticks in a mournful salute, they got more whistles than cheers from their devastated fans.
Teemu Selanne can only chuckle when he realizes his two linemates had yet to be born the first time he played hockey at the Olympics.
Semyon Varlamov celebrated his new contract with another stellar performance in net.
Jussi Jokinen had a goal and two assists in the first period, Evgeni Malkin scored in the opening minute, and the Pittsburgh Penguins chased Jonathan Quick in a 4-1 victory over the struggling Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.
The NHL-leading Anaheim Ducks had plenty of problems against the pesky Minnesota Wild. Claustrophobia wasn't one of them.
Last year, the Chicago Blackhawks gave the Minnesota Wild a quick exit from the playoffs.
HELSINKI (AP) — Finland veteran Teemu Selanne has been selected to play at his sixth Winter Olympics.
The Capitals scored early and late in regulation before turning toward goaltender Braden Holtby, who sealed a satisfying comeback victory. Holtby had 33 saves, then blanked the Minnesota in a shootout as Washington beat the Wild 3-2 to extend its winning streak to four games.
Elliott stopped 17 shots and kept the game tied at 2 with a lunging stick save to deny Mikael Granlund with 13 minutes left in the third period.
"I think that's our biggest strength, to have a good defensive game," Granlund said. "I thought we played good defensively and Kemps had a good game in net. We didn't give them too much."
