Finland 8, Austria 4
The depth of talent for Finland allowed a misstep to be avoided in its opening game of the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
|Korpikoski and Finland will play again Friday at 10am MST against Norway.|
Austria scored twice in the first 10 minutes, including a shocking goal on the first shift, before Finland rallied with goals by six players in an 8-4 victory at Bolshoy Ice Dome in a Group B preliminary-round game Thursday afternoon.
Coyotes forward Lauri Korpikoski skated on a line with Tuomo Ruutu and Olli Jokinen, playing 15:02 with two shots on goals and two penalty minutes.
