2011 - Buffalo, United States

Russia completed the biggest comeback in world junior championship history to beat Canada 5-3 and win the gold medal in Buffalo.

It was Russia's first gold medal since they won in 2003 over Canada in Halifax. For Canada, it was a second straight silver medal after they lost to the USA 6-5 in overtime in last year's final in Saskatoon.

Canada cruised to a 3-0 lead after two periods in a game that had the pro-Canadian crowd rocking and the Canucks in full control of the play. Ryan Ellis, Carter Ashton, and Brayden Schenn each scored to chase Russian starting goalie Dmitri Shikin on 18 shots.

But in the opening minutes of the third period, the game changed dramatically.

Artemi Panarin and Maxim Kitsyn both scored from close range just 13 seconds apart to stun the Canadians and the crowd to pull to within 3-2. Just over four minutes later, Vladimir Tarasenko wired a one-timer past Mark Visentin to tie the game.

In all, the Russians scored their trio of comeback goals in just 4:56.

Then with less than five minutes to play, Panarin potted his second of the game past Visentin to give Russia its first lead. Nikita Dvurechenski scored an insurance goal with 1:16 to play to ice the game for the Russians.

When the final buzzer sounded, Team Russia stormed the ice in a raucous celebration while the Canadians watched in stunned silence.
