Canada leads Russia in gold medal game Staff
1/5/2007 2:18:19 PM

Canada has a big lead over Russia in the gold medal game at the world junior championship in Leksand, Sweden. Canada leads 3-0 early in the second period on goals by Andrew Cogliano, Bryan Little and Jonathan Toews.

All three goals came in a 2:27 span late in the first period.

Cogliano finished a beautiful passing play with Marc Staal and Ryan O'Marra, one-timing a shot past Semen Varlamov into the Russian net to open the scoring at 15:35.

Less than two minutes later, Little swept in a powerplay goal to give Canada a two-goal cushion.

Thirty-three seconds after that, Toews went upstairs on Varlamov for another powerplay goal to make it 3-0 for Canada.

Early in the first period, Canadian goalie Carey Price stopped Igor Makarov on a breakaway, with some help from Ryan Parent's speed on the back-check.

Canada's first good chance came with Gennady Churilov in the penalty box. The puck came to Sam Gagne on a rebound, but it bounced over his stick in front of a wide open net.

Andrey Kiryukhin's wrap around attempt in the middle of the first period looked dangerous, but was stopped calmly by Price.

It is the third straight year, and the sixth time since 1999, that Canada and Russia are playing for gold in this tournament.
