Game 2: Russia 6, Canada 3

Team Russia rebounded from a Game 1 loss, scoring three times in the second period, and three more in the third, taking Game 2 by a 6-3 margin in Yaroslavl.

The big highlight of the scoreless first period came at 14:10, when Canada forward Mark Scheifele took a five-minute major for kneeing and a game misconduct. Canada killed off the ensuing power play but played a man down the rest of the contest.

As in Game 1, the scoring opened up in the second period. Russia's Anton Zlobin scored a power play marker just 38 seconds into the middle frame. Three minutes later, Kirill Kapustin extended Russia's lead to 2-0 with an unassisted tally on the man advantage.

Canada countered less than three minutes later, when Ty Rattie converted a feed from Sean Monahan, making the score 2-1.

Kapustin gave Russia 3-1 lead later in the period with a shorthanded tally. Anton Slepyshev assisted on the goal.

The Canadians started a comeback seven minutes into the third period, when Morgan Rielly redirected Lukas Sutter's shot past Russian netminder Andrei Makarov. But just two minutes later, Russia countered on Maxim Shalunov's first goal of the series. Yaroslav Kosov picked up the lone assist.

Down three goals late in the game, Canada continued to battle, and Islanders prospect Ryan Strome scored his first goal of the tournament at 15:54, on an assist from Rattie.

With two minutes remaining, Shalunov put the game out of reach with an unassisted empty-net goal.

The rest of the series switches back to Canada, with Game 3 scheduled Monday, Aug. 13 at 7:00 p.m. at Halifax Metro Centre in Halifax, NS.
