WJC: Russia Beats Canada For Bronze Medal

Russia defeated Canada 6-5 in overtime in the bronze medal game at the 2013 World Junior Hockey Championships, ending Canada's run of 14 consecutive years with a medal in this tournament.

Valeri Nichushkin scored the game winner in OT for the Russians, who have now medaled in three straight tournaments themselves (gold in 2011, silver in 2012, bronze in 2013).

The stage is now set for the gold medal game between the US and Sweden at 8 AM, which will bring the curtain down on what's been a thrilling and dramatic tournament.
