Canada beats Finland in OT in Olympic hockey

Team Canada has secured the third seed in the medal round of the men's Olympic hockey tournament after a 2-1 overtime win over Finland in their final preliminary round game.

Drew Doughty scored both goals for Canada, including the winner halfway through the five-minute overtime period.

The win means Canada will play either Switzerland or Latvia in the quarter-finals.

Canada missed a chance to clinch the first seed and an easier road to the final by not winning in regulation.

Tuomo Ruutu scored Finland's only goal.

Carey Price stopped 14 shots in the Canadian net as both teams played a tight, patient game.
