U20 Hockey Championship: Russia To Face Canada In The Final! Video.

The Russian under-twenty national hockey team has given its fans a great present for the New Year's! They got into the final of the World Ice-Hockey Championship by beating Sweden in shootouts.

Unlike the beginning of the tournament, Russia started the match vigorously: leading 2-0 by the 28th minute.Video of the first goal:

But then the Swedes not only tied the game but went up by one. The 2-3 score remained until the minute and a half left in the third period, when Kalinin tied during the crash-the-net effort of his team.

In the shootouts Russia's Golubev was victorious over Lener, and the goalie, Shikin, saved on all Swedish attempts.

Great performance and the display of never-say-die character lead Russia to face the Canucks in the final on Wednesday! Good luck, comrades!
