Russia evens 4-game junior hockey challenge with 6-3 win over Canada

YAROSLAVL, Russia - The Canada-Russia junior hockey challenge moves to Halifax tied one game apiece after Kirill Kapustin's hat trick gave Russia a 6-3 win.

Anton Zlobin and Kapustin both scored on power plays early in the second period of the penalty-filled game.

Ty Rattie brought Canada within one with his own power-play goal but Kapustin scored his second short-handed to make it 3-1.

Morgan Reilly tipped it in to bring Canada within one in the third but about two minutes later Maxim Shalunov extended Russia's lead.

Kapustin made it 5-2 with his third goal but Canada's Ryan Strome replied, scoring less than a minute later.

Shalunov scored an empty netter to seal the win as the series moves to Halifax Monday and Tuesday.
