There was no “miracle” for the USA as they lost to Russia for the second time in the 2009 World Championships 3-2. Goals from Ilya Kovalchuk, Alexander Frolov, and Konstantin Gorovikov helped the Russian team overcome two deficits to make their second straight appearance in the gold medal game.
They will meet Canada, a team they defeated last year to clinch their first gold since 1993. Canada beat Sweden 3-1 to set up the rematch of the two best teams statistically. The final will be played at 2 pm on Sunday while Sweden entertains the US earlier in the day.
