Nikita Kucherov scored a power-play goal with 1:36 remaining in the third period to give the Russian Junior National Team a 3-3 tie with Switzerland in the quarterfinal round of the 2013 World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia.

Sven Andrighetto had given Switzerland its first lead, 3-2, 8:57 into the third when he scored off his own rebound. The Swiss will be entering their fourth straight overtime period at the WJC.
