It's Canada vs. Russia for the gold

Canada Canada, with a roster that features Derek Roy, will meet Russia (Maxim Afinogenov, Dmitri Kalinin) in Sunday afternoon's gold-medal game at the World Championships in Quebec City. Canada overcame Sweden, 5-4, on Friday (see the video highlights here) while Russia earned its berth in the final with a 4-0 win over Finland.

And if you missed the highlights of Finland's 3-2 overtime win over the United States in the quarterfinals, you can catch up here. The U.S. was in a 2-0 hole late in the third period before getting two quick goals to tie the score and the second one was netted by Drew Stafford.
