World Cup of Hockey: Hosts score three goals in third to advance to final series


09-25-2016 15:57 BJT

To the ice and a marquee match-up at the World Cup of Hockey as hosts Canada would take on Russia, with a spot in the final on the line. This would be another chapter in the history of the nations, and its two captains. Sidney Crosby, has held the upperhand over the Russian Alexander Ovechkin, managing to lead the red and white to two Olympic titles. Sid the Kid, had also managed to lead his club side to a pair of Stanley Cup titles, while Ovie, had been unable to get over the hump with his nation, or his NHL team.

Captain Canada would give the hosts the lead in the opening period, poking the poke away from Dmitry Kulikov and deking Sergei Bobrovsky and goes backhand shelf. 1-zip Canada.

The Russians storm back in the second period, scoring twice -- Evgeny Kuznetsov batting the puck out of the air on this attempt to give his side the lead.

Canada would tie it on a Brad Marchand goal at the end of the second, and he scores again to start the third to give the red and white a 3-2 lead.

The hosts would double the advantage, as Corey Perry is on the doorstep to shovel home this rebound -- he always seems to score in big games for his country.

John Tavares scored another as Canada get three goals in the third and grab a 5-3 to eliminate Russia and move onto the final, where they will play either Sweden or Team Europe.
