World Hockey Championship: Finals

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

Russia 7, USA 2

Russia defeated the United States 7-2 in Sunday’s bronze medal game in Moscow, earning an eighth medal in the last 10 years of the annual competition.

Canadiens defensemen Alexei Emelin finished the night a +2 with 18:43 of ice time, winning his fourth medal at the international event.

With the Americans trailing 5-1 after 40, Canadiens goaltender Mike Condon took the net in relief of Keith Kinkaid, stopping eight shots in the final frame.

Canada 2, Finland 0

Brendan Gallagher and Team Canada avenged a 4-0 preliminary round loss to Finland by a 2-0 scoreline on Sunday, capturing a second-straight gold medal at the IIHF World Championship.

Although the Canadians outshot the Finns 33-16, Gallagher did not test goaltender Mikko Koskinen, getting just 7:22 of ice time in the winning effort.

Connor McDavid scored what would turn out to be the game-winner at 11:24 in the opening period and Matt Duchene added an empty-netter with one second left in regulation.

The gold medal is a first for Gallagher with the Canadian Men’s National Team, having previously taken home a bronze at the 2012 World Juniors in Alberta.

The Habs forward finished the tournament a +5 with two goals — including one game-winner — and three assists over 10 games.
