After Dmitry Mikhailov and MatthewPeca traded goals just 1:34 apart, Nikita Kucherov scored in the final minute of the second, putting thefinishing touches on a wild period that saw the teams combine for five goals and 27 shots.

Denis Perevozchikov earned the win in goal for Russia after taking over for starter Oleg Dyatlov sevenminutes into the second period; Dyatlov left the game after taking a shot to the mask.Canada East will see the ice on the tournament's opening day on Monday, facing the United States at 4 p.m.PT, while the Russians will be the last team to make their 2010 debut, taking on Switzerland on Tuesday night(7:30 p.m. PT).
