On Sunday, the Russian Classic took place at the Gazprom Arena in Saint Petersburg, with two well-taken Anton Slepyshev goals and wonderful goalkeeping from Ilya Sorokin earning a 2:0 victory against visiting Finland. Russia finish in second place of the competition, one point behind Sweden. The Czech Republic and Finland bring up the rear.
