Ryan Strome, Griffin Reinhart and the rest of Team Canada emerged with a 4-1 victory over Russia on Monday. Neither Islanders prospect found the score sheet as Canada finished the preliminary round with a perfect 4-0-0 record, earning a bye in the first round of the playoff bracket.

The Canadians scored power play goals less than two minutes apart in the first period. Russia drew the difference back to a single goal later in the period, but Canada added a goal in the second and another (empty-net) in the third.

Canada finished round robin play with a plus-13 goal differential in four games and will have two days off before playing in the semifinals. They await the results of the Jan. 2 quarterfinal matchups between the Czech Republic and the USA, as well as Russia vs. Switzerland.

Ville Pokka and Team Finland lost to Sweden 7-4 Monday and finished the preliminary round at 2-2-0. With the loss, Finland finished fourth in Group A and failed to qualify for the playoff round. Pokka did not factor into any of the goals, but finished with five shots.

Sweden built a 3-0 lead midway through the opening period, but Finland came from behind to tie the contest at 3-3 in the second. The Swedes scored two more times before the end of the middle frame, and after Finland scored in the third to make the game 5-4, Sweden added two more in a 23-second span to wrap up the contest.

Finland, Germany, Slovakia and Latvia move into the two-game relegation round. Three of the teams will stay to play in next year’s tournament, while the fourth will be relegated to Division I Group A. Finland takes on Germany on Jan. 2.
