Montreal • Denis Guryanov scored at 33 seconds of overtime to give Russia a 2-1 victory over Sweden on Thursday in the world junior hockey bronze-medal game.
Swedish defenseman Rasmus Dahlin attempted to feed the puck back to Alexander Nylander, but the scoring leader couldn't control it. Guryanov, a 19-year-old Dallas Stars minor leaguer, jumped on the puck and put a backhander through goalie Felix Sandstrom's legs.
Ilya Samsonov, a 2015 first-round pick of the Washington Capitals, made 38 saves for Russia, allowing only Jonathan Dahlen's tying goal midway through the second period. Minnesota draft pick Kirill Kaprizov scored for Russia at 16 seconds of the second, the captain's tournament-leading ninth goal.
