SOCHI, Russia (Reuters) - Russia were eliminated from the men's ice hockey competition at the Sochi Games on Wednesday following a 3-1 quarter-final loss to Finland.

The host nation entered the 12-team tournament as one of the favorites but ultimately fell short against a Finnish team that won the bronze medal at the 2010 Vancouver Games.
