November 12, 2012 - 7:34 PM

SARNIA, Ont. - Ryan Strome and Frankie Corrado scored as the Ontario Hockey League's all-stars edged Russia 2-1 in Game 4 of Subway Super Series.

Strome scored the long goal in the first period on a one-timer from the top of the circle.

Corrado then put the OHL ahead by 2-0 at 9:16 in the third after he buried a big rebound off a point shot from Freddie Hamilton.

The Russians broke the shutout as Nail Yakupov scored with just 37 seconds remaining with an extra attacker.

The victory helped the OHL tie the best-of-six series 2-2. Russia now travels to Vancouver for Game 5 on Wednesday against the Western Hockey League all-stars.

Jordan Binnington started the game in net for the OHL, making all eight saves before being replaced midway through the second period by Jake Paterson, who allowed Yakupov's goal on nine shots.

Andrei Vasilevski was named the player of the game for the Russians after stopping 27 shots in the loss, while Strome took the honours for the OHL.

The OHL struggled on the power play, finishing the night 0 for 6, while the Russians missed on just two chances.

The OHL is now 19-1 against Russia since the series began in 2003. Russia's 2-1 win on Thursday in Guelph, Ont., snapped the OHL's 18-game winning streak.
