Russia skate past Finland 3-0, advancing to matchup with Canada

TORONTO -- Vladimir Tarasenko and Ivan Telegin scored 1:19 apart in the second period and Russia beat Finland 3-0 on Thursday to set up a World Cup of Hockey semifinal against Canada — and knock out Team North America.

"The opportunity is huge," Russian captain Alex Ovechkin said about facing Canada. "They have a pretty good team with solid players. We just have to match it. ...

"I play Olympic Games in (Canada) and everybody is going to be crazy. The atmosphere's going to be unbelievable. It's going to be a great match to play, to be involved in, to be in the stands and be able to watch."

Evgeni Malkin scored in the third period for Russia (2-1-0), and Sergei Bobrovsky made 21 saves.

"It's going to be a great, great challenge and we accept it," Russian forward Evgeny Kuznetsov said.

Tuukka Rask made 19 saves for Finland (0-3-3). Finland was winless for the first time in a senior tournament, scoring only one goal in three games.

"We had a good chance to succeed here, but you don't score, you can't win," Finnish coach Lauri Marjamaki said. "We have to keep going and maybe analyze a little bit later. Just now, a little bit disappointing."
