Canada's world juniors are going to the final again and shutting out Russia 5-0 in the semi-finals today.

Alex Newhook got Team Canada off to a quick start with a goal within the first minute of play, maintaining Canada's streak of scoring first in every game they’ve played in this year’s tournament.

From there, goaltender Devon Levi did what he's done all tournament — stop everything that came his way.

It's his third shutout of the IIHF World Junior Championships, being played in Edmonton, Alta this year. He shut out Czech Republic Saturday. 

Connor McMichael, Cole Perfetti, Braden Schneider and Dylan Cozens also scored for Canada.

Canada will play the winner of U.S. and Finland, which square off later tonight in the second game of today’s semi final rounds.

The gold medal game is scheduled for tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. on TSN.
