The Finnish women's hockey team sported masks for Tuesday's Olympic matchup, no doubt aware another player on the Russian Olympic Committe (ROC) squad tested positive for coronavirus.

Forward Polina Bolgareva returned a positive test after suiting up for Monday's 6-1 loss to Canada, according to head coach Evgeny Bobariko. That game was delayed over an hour because of COVID-19 concerns on both teams.

Bobariko said the team was informed about the positive test after returning to the Olympic Village following the game.

The ROC has eight players unavailable in Beijing because of the virus and another player was left in Moscow after a positive test.

"I don't know how it's happening," Bobariko said.
