Finland always enters major tournaments flying under the proverbial radar, but often ends up being a surprise team.
That happened at the 1998 Nagano Olympics when Finland took bronze. It happened again in the 2004 World Cup of Hockey when Finland played in the final against Canada. In 2006, the Finnish "Lions" returned to the final at the Turin Olympics and then captured another Olympic bronze medal in Vancouver in 2010.
This time around, it seems that Finland has gone from flying under the radar to being in stealth mode.
And that's just the way they like it.
Since NHL players began participating in the Olympics in 1998, Finland is the only team that has been on the podium three times. Canada, Russia, the United States and the Czech Republic have all medaled twice; Sweden has once.
