Teemu Selanne set the all-time Olympic scoring record Friday night in Vancouver by assisting on Kimmo Timonen’s second goal of the game as Finland jumped out to a 3-0 lead over Germany.

Selanne drew the secondary assist on Timonen’s goal with 3:57 remaining in the second period. It was his 37th point in Olympic competition (20 goals, 17 assists), spanning five separate Winter Games beginning in 1992.

"I'm not a big numbers guy, especially when I'm still playing, but maybe one day I'll look back," Selanne said in a TV interview after the game. "I've obviously played a long time and played with great players who helped make this possible. It's a nice honor."

Selanne had been tied with Valeri Kharlamov of Russia, Vlastimil Bubnik of the former Czechoslovakia and Harry Watson of Canada.
