The Boston Bruins' rink is 200 feet long by 85 feet wide, just like all the others in the NHL.
At one end of the ice, Jimmy Howard made his best save of the game. At the other, Pavel Datsyuk scored the only goal.
The Boston Bruins worked all season to get home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs.
The NHL-leading Boston Bruins followed their game plan of keeping Gustav Nyquist in front of them for more than two periods.
The Detroit Red Wings have stayed in the hunt in the Eastern Conference playoff race despite injuries to key players.
Alex Ovechkin, Pavel Datsyuk and their teammates had nursed dreams about this week for several years. They were all dashed in 60 frustrating minutes.
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 Russia captain and Detroit Red Wings star on Tuesday said he is healthy for the Olympics after joining the home team for its second full practice.
The Russians are resting Pavel Datsyuk, hoping he'll be healthy enough to play in their Sochi Games opener.
"Just forget about this one and just keep going to the next game," Datsyuk said. "We know they (will) come back more aggressive."
"It's a good start," Datsyuk said, "but we know there are many tough games (ahead)."
