Its been four years since the Canadians and Russians skated against each other
in the finals of the World Junior Hockey Championship, and tonight the two rival
hockey nations will take to the ice with gold medal honours on the line. Rob Gronkowski Elite Jersey . Watch the game
live at 7pm et/4pm pt on TSN, TSN.ca and TSN Mobile. Team Canada will be looking
for its sixth gold medal in the last seven years after falling to the U.S. in
last years tournament. For Team Russia, a victory would give them their third
World Junior title since 2002. It would also help them avoid another runner-up
finish to the Canadians; Russia finished second to Canada three years in a row
from 2005 to 2007. The Canucks earned a 6-3 win over the Russians on Boxing Day,
this years tournament-opener for both teams. Since then, the Canadians only
blemish came in a 6-5 shootout loss to Sweden in the final game of the
preliminary round. Canadas most recent win over the U.S in the semifinals was
arguably their best performance of the tournament. Head coach Dave Cameron had
his players ready and his team was able to dictate the pace of the game to the
Americans, en route to a 4-1 victory. “Playing the Americans we knew that we
would have to have a good start against a team like that,” said forward Ryan
Johansen. “We knew that it was do-or-die, so we made sure that we prepared as
best as possible.  I think we did a good job of that and we have to have the
same type of start against the Russians.” After starting 0-2 with losses to
Canada and Sweden, the Russians answered by pounding Norway and the Czech
Republic by a combined score of 16-5. They followed that up with a 4-3 comeback
win in overtime against Finland in the quarterfinals. The Russians are also
coming off their most spirited effort so far, overcoming a talented Swedish team
4-3 in a semifinal shootout. “From what Ive heard and seen, theyve been
improving every game and Im sure this is going to be a much different game than
the (first) one,” stated Johansen. The Canadians are hoping they can finish the
tournament off with a bookend victory on Wednesday night, but they know it will
not come easy.  “The Russians are playing great hockey right now,” said
defenceman Tyson Barrie.  “Theyve had two big comeback wins and Im sure theyve
got lots of momentum going in to this one.  Im sure its going to be a great game
and well need to be on top of our game to get this one.” The Russians will be
shooting at a new netminder, as Mark Visentin has since taken over starting
duties from Olivier Roy. The change in net came after Canadas only loss of the
tournament, but the move has proved to be a solid one thus far as Visentin has
stopped 43 of 45 shots on goal in their quarter-final and semifinals wins. “Its
going to be a really tough game, but Im confident in the way my forwards and
[defence] play in front of me,” said Visentin. The Russians will also have a new
face between the pipes after Dmitri Shikin took over for Igor Bobkov following
Russias Boxing Day defeat to Canada. Shikin has posted a 4-1 record with a 2.47
goals against average and a .928 save percentage since getting the call. One of
Shikins top priorities will be stopping forward Brayden Schenn. After all the
talk that Canada was lacking the star-power it has enjoyed at previous
tournaments, Schenn has stepped up not only to lead the Canadian squad in
scoring, but the tournament as well with seven goals and nine assists. Schenn
enters the gold medal game with a chance to break Dale McCourts Canadian record
for most points in a tournament with 18 set in 1977. “For me the main goal is
winning the gold medal,” said Schenn, who has seven more points than any other
player in this years competition. “Id rather have a gold medal than break a
record.  Its all about the team and if we win a gold medal, Ill be happy with
that.”———————————————————————————- TSN STATS PACK
