Finnish women earn bronze with 3-2 overtime win
Karoliina Rantamaki scored 2:33 into overtime on Thursday to give Finland a 3-2 win over Sweden and the Olympic bronze medal in women's hockey.

Saara Tuominen skated the puck deep into the left circle and threw a pass across the goalmouth, where Rantamaki redirected it past Sara Grahn for the win -- and the Finnish women's first medal since beating China to capture the bronze in 1998.

Noora Raty made 16 saves while Heidi Pelttari and Michelle Karvinen had regulation goals for Finland, which has played in all four bronze-medal games.

Maria Rooth and Danijela Rundqvist scored for Sweden. Grahn stopped 21 shots for the Swedes, who beat Finland for the bronze in 2002 and won the silver four years ago.
