Final: Canada 5, Russia 2 (OT)
Ryan Strome was the hero for Team Canada after Game 4 of the Canada-Russia Challenge in Halifax, NS, Tuesday. The Islanders forward scored in overtime following Canada's 4-2 victory, giving Team Canada the series win.

Team Canada beat the Russians 4-2 in Game 4 Tuesday evening. With the win, Canada tied the series at 2-2, forcing a 20-minute sudden death overtime following regulation.

Canada had a 20-8 edge in shots during the first period, but Russia's Andrei Sigarev led off the scoring at 14:23 of the opening frame. Less than two minutes later, the Canadians evened up the score on Lucas Lessio's tally. Jonathan Huberdeau and Strome assisted on Lessio's goal.

The Russians took another lead four minutes into the second on Albert Yarulin's power play marker. Once again, Canada countered, as Ty Rattie scored the tying and go-ahead goals midway through the period, giving Canada a 3-2 advantage going into the third stanza.

Jonathan Huberdeau gave the Canadians an insurance goal at 14:02 of the third, and Canada skated to a 4-2 victory.

With the series tied 2-2, the teams played a 20-minute overtime to decide a series winner. Strome fired a shot past Andrei Vasilevski at 4:02 of the extra period to clinch the series for Team Canada.

The 2012 Canada-Russia Challenge was played to mark the 40-year anniversary 1972 Summit Series between Canada and the Soviet Union, in which Canada went 4-3-1 during the eight-game tournament. The 2012 exhibition started last week in Yaroslavl, RUS, also paying tribute to the players, coaches and staff of the Yaroslavl Lokomotiv hockey team who perished in a plane crash last September.
