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.
