PHILADELPHIA - DECEMBER 12: Jarkko Immonen #38 of the New York Rangers backhands the puck past Joni Pitkanen #44 and Antero Niittymaki #30 of the Philadelphia Flyers for a second period goal during their game at the Wachovia Center December 12, 2006 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Jarkko Immonen and Mikael Granlund scored two goals apiece, and Finland opened preliminary-round Olympic play with an 8-4 victory over Austria on Thursday in men's hockey. Jussi Jokinen and Petri Kontiola each had a goal and an assist for the Finns, who put 52 shots on beleaguered Austria goalie Bernhard Starkbaum despite playing the final two periods without captain Teemu Selanne. The 43-year-old Finnish Flash had an assist in the first period of his record-tying sixth Olympics before sitting out with an upper-body injury. Selanne should be fine for the Finns' next game, team spokesman Janne Lahti said. Michael Grabner scored three goals in his Olympic debut for Austria. The New York Islanders forward scored 36 seconds into the first period, and Austria had two early leads before Finland took control.
