Canada scored three unanswered goals in the final period to pull away from Russia 6-3. Lightning prospects Carter Ashton and Brett Connolly did not find the scoresheet for the Canadians. Ashton skated on Canada's second line with Casey Cizikas and Cody Eakin, while Connolly, who was questionable after a pre-tournament concussion, was an extra forward in the match. Canada outshot Russia 42-27 in the victory.
