Helsinki • Reigning champion Russia lost for the second time in two days at the ice hockey world championships, going down 3-2 to Finland on Friday due largely to goalie Antti Raanta's 34 saves.

Finland's Petri Kontiola scored at 3:22 and 17:21 in the first period. He has five goals and four assists in five games. Juhamatti Aaltonen made it 3-1 in a power play at 16 minutes in the second, on an assist by Janne Pesonen.

Raanta was dominant after the Russians drew to within a goal when star forward Ilya Kovalchuk scored at 1:48 in the second period with his team's goalie pulled. Kovalchuk was ejected with a couple of seconds remaining after knocking down Pesonen with a right hook. On Thursday, Russia was beaten 2-1 by France in the biggest upset of the tournament.

Bernhard Starkbaum made 42 saves before stopping all 3 shots in the shootout, and Austria beat 2012 runner-up Slovakia 2-1 earlier Friday.

Austria's Thomas Vanek was the only player to score in a shootout ended by Starkbaum's save to deny Miroslav Satan. Slovakia, France, Austria and Germany can all advance to the playoffs in Helsinki.

In Stockholm, Zbynek Michalek and Jiri Novotny scored on power plays in the third period and the Czech Republic beat Slovenia 4-2.
