Russia downed the Canadian juniors even though the Canadians had a perfect record in the preliminary round. The final score was 6 to 5.
Russia had built a huge lead eight minutes into the third period of 6 to 1. But the Canadians fought back and scored 4 goals. It was not enough to defeat the Russian squad.
In the second period after they got close to the Russians the Canadians took several damaging penalties. The Canadian goal tender Scott Wedgewood was not at his best either. He left the game after the fourth Russian goal after a Russian forward crashed into him.
The Canadians will now face Finland on Thursday for the bronze medal. For more see this CBC article.
