UFA, Russia (CP) -
The Canadian junior hockey team has opened its eight-game Super Series against Russia with a win.

Brad Marchand of the QMJHL's Val d'Or Foreurs and Sam Gagner of the OHL's London Knights each scored and had an assist to lift Canada to a 4-2 win over the Russian squad.

Kyle Turris, who will play at the University of Wisconsin this season, added a goal on a penalty shot while Stefan Legein of the OHL's Niagara IceDogs opened the scoring for the Canadians.

Ilya Kablukov and Alexander Ryabev gave Russia a 2-0 lead with first-period goals.

Canada's penalty-killing unit was busy. It killed off 11 Russian power plays, including two two-man advantages. Canada was 0-for-5 on the power play.

The next game is Wednesday in Ufa.

The final four games of the event, which commemorates the 1972 Summit Series, will be staged in Canada.
