The powerhouse and odds on favorites to win the Olympic Gold Medal in Men's Ice Hockey was the host country of Russia coming into the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi.

But as fate would have it, the pressure proved to be too much for Team Russia and they were eliminated from the Olympic Tournament today with a 3 - 1 loss to Finland this morning.

Everyone was down after the loss. Even the Sochi Bear, that is supposed to be the happy lovable mascot of the Games was devastated.

Cheer up, buddy. Maybe Bob Costas will buy you a shot of Vodka to help ease the pain. It helped him.
