VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Finland has won the bronze medal in hockey, rallying from a late two-goal deficit for a 5-3 victory over Slovakia.
Olli Jokinen scored the tying and go-ahead goals during the dynamic third-period comeback by Finland, the only team to win four medals in the past five Olympic tournaments.
Teemu Selanne didn't score in what was likely the final game for the Olympics' career scoring leader.
Pavol Demitra had a goal and two assists for the Slovaks, who couldn't win their nation's first medals in a team sport. Slovakia still had its best Olympic finish in fourth place.
