The IIHF World Championships are happening abroad-- in Finland and Sweden, in fact. There are two Devils apiece on Teams USA and Russia.
Those squads happened to square off Tuesday, with Ilya Kovalchuk gaining a goal and an assist in Russia's 5-3 win over the Americans at Hartwall Arena in Helsinki.
Kovalchuk now has five goals in only three games and leads the entire tournament with seven points. Kovalchuk's linemate-- on the Devils and Team Russia-- Andrei Loktionov was a plus-1 in 12:18.
Stephen Gionta and Ryan Carter were each a minus-2 for Team USA.
