Finland's power play continued to roll as Teemu Selanne became the best scorer in Olympic history.
The Finns scored four more power play goals -- to bring their tournament total to six -- in a 5-0 romp over Germany on Friday night and Selanne broke the all-time high for points in Olympic play.
Selanne assisted on the second of Kimmo Timonen's two power-play goals to reach 37 points in his Olympic career. The veteran forward is in his fifth Olympic games and captured the record despite missing the 1994 Lillehammer games because NHL players were not yet allowed to compete.
Defenseman Joni Pitknanen also scored on the man advantage for the Finns as goalie Nicklas Backstrom made 14 saves in the victory.
