Good luck trying to score on Finland at the World Championship.

With a 3-0 win over Slovakia on Saturday, the Finns recorded their fourth straight shutout of the tournament. Pekka Rinne earned the first three, while Juuse Saros was in net for the latest.

Combined, the pair set a modern day World Championship team shutout record, according to the IIHF.

Finland hasn't given up a goal since the opening game against USA, and have given up a tournament best total of 5. The results can be attributed not only to the goaltending, but also to total team defence.

"We take lots of pride that we don't let up lots of chances or lots of goals," said forward Jussi Jokinen. "We play really strong defence, our PK has been great and that's the thing we really want to concentrate on for the whole tournament."

Finland sits in a tie for first in Group B with the Americans, with 12 points through five games.
