(Newser) – They went from gold-medal hopefuls to fourth-place finishers in two days. The USA men's hockey team lost to Finland 5-0 today and will leave Sochi without a medal, reports USA Today. Unlike yesterday's 1-0 loss to Canada, this one wasn't much of a game. When Finland scored twice in 11 seconds in the second period, it was pretty much over. Meanwhile, the San Francisco Chronicle notes one last sting from the Canada loss: A billboard in Chicago put up before the game declared "Loser Keeps Bieber."
