UFA, RUSSIA - Nothing like a barnburner in Canada’s finale at the 2013 world junior championship.

Scrambly, pond hockey, end-to-end. Call it what you want.

And don’t forget that Canada’s 14-year medal run in the world junior is over.

Russian forward Valeri Nichushkin blew past defenceman Ryan Murphy and slipped the puck behind goalie Malcolm Subban at 1:35 of overtime, giving Russia a 6-5 win and the bronze medal. Nichushkin was the player suspended for one game for hitting Canada defenceman Tyler Wotherspoon from behind in a preliminary game.
