    TURIN, February 25 (RIA Novosti) - After Finland's 4-0 victory in Olympic men's ice hockey semifinals, Russia will play the Czech Republic for bronze Saturday.

    Finland, whose team has never won Olympic ice hockey gold, will face Sweden, who defeated the Czech Republic 7-3, in the finals Sunday.

    Russian forward Pavel Datsyuk said his team had lacked force to defeat the Finns in the semifinals.

    "We probably wanted to play a little simpler but that yielded no result," he said.

    Datsyuk expressed hope that Russia would be able to win bronze in Saturday's match.
