HELSINKI — Yegor Korshkov had a goal and an assist and Russia advanced to the gold-medal game of the world junior hockey championship with a 2-1 victory over the United States on Monday.

Russia will face host Finland for the gold on Tuesday. The Finns advanced to the final after hanging on to beat Sweden 2-1 earlier Monday.

Pavel Kraskovski also scored for Russia and Ilya Samsonov made 26 saves.

Christian Dvorak scored for the United States, which will face Sweden on Tuesday in the bronze-medal game. Alex Nedeljkovic stopped 31 shots.

The Americans have won bronze four times (1986, 1992, 2007, 2011).

It’s a disappointing outcome for a team loaded with NHL-drafted talent.
