Russia Wins Gold

Ilya Kovalchuk tied things up in the third with his first goal of the tournament, then tallied again on the power play in OT to lift Russia to a thrilling 5-4 win over Canada in the gold medal game of the IIHF world championship. It's Russia's first title since 1993.

What a comeback for the Russians, who also got two goals and an assist from Alexander Semin, and for Kovalchuk, who, I thought, played pretty poorly for the first 50 minutes. The Caps' trio of Semin, Alex Ovechkin and Sergei Fedorov were on the ice for Kovalchuk's 4 on 3 winner at 2:42 of the extra session.

Here's the CP's gamer. I'd write more, but I've got to catch up on the other hockey game.
