Brad Jacobs and his Sault Ste. Marie rink got back in the win column at the Olympic men's curling tournament with a 7-4 win over the host Russian squad on Wednesday.

Coming off back-to-back losses to Switzerland and Sweden, Canada never trailed in the game against Russia's Andrey Drozdov, whose team dropped to 0-4.

After scoring a pair in the second end, Jacobs gave up a steal of one in the fourth before notching four in the fifth end.

After Drozdov blanked the sixth and seventh ends, he scored a pair to close the deficit to two.

With the hammer in the ninth, Jacobs took a single and ran Drozdov out of stones in the 10th to seal the win.

Canada's next game is on Thursday against Denmark at 5 a.m. ET.
