    Canada advances to World Cup final with 5-3 win over Russia

    Through two periods on Saturday night it looked as if Sergei Bobrovsky was going to give Russia a real chance to steal their World Cup semifinal game against Canada. At that point he was still almost single handedly holding off a relentless Canadian offensive zone push and keeping his team in the game. And then Canada finally kicked the door down in the third period on their way to a 5-3 win to advance to the World Cup final. Canada will now play the winner of Sunday’s Sweden-Team Europe game in a best-of-three championship series to determine the winner of the tournament. That series will begin on Tuesday night.

Grabovski, absent from Isles camp after failing to pass his physical, has been placed on IR with an upper-body injury, a byproduct of concussion symptoms he’s suffered since last season. The 32-year-old hasn’t suited up since Mar. 15, when he returned from a 10-game absence to play 17 minutes in a shootout loss to Pittsburgh. At the time, the Isles were happy to have Grabovski back in the lineup, but the feeling was fleeting. Immediately after the Pittsburgh game, the club sent Grabovski back to New York for medical evaluation. He didn’t play another game that year, or in the club’s playoff run. In the midst of a four-year,
