TORONTO A drama-filled game restored some swagger to Russia while leaving the Swiss nursing their wounds Sunday at the world junior hockey championship. Walter McCarty Jersey .Russia emerged a 7-0 winner despite being outshot 32-23 including a 7-1 stretch at the start of the game and being a man short for 10:03 of a combative second period that saw Swiss defenceman Phil Baltisberger stretchered off after being flattened by a controversial hit.Switzerlands Montreal-born coach John Fust was left shaking his head at the numbers and the final outcome.We got off to a good start, we were able to establish our game plan the first 10 minutes. But then any time we had turnovers, thats a very good team that has a lot of offensive potential and they put the puck in the net and we didnt when we had our chance.Russian goalie Igor Shestyorkin was equal to any challenge, getting some help from his goalpost in the final minute as the hard-working Swiss were denied on a pair of two-on-one opportunities.Ludovic Waeber replaced Gauthier Descloux in the Swiss goal to open the third. Descloux gave up five goals on 13 shots but was not helped by Swiss turnovers.Rushan Rafikov, Alexander Dergachyov, Pavel Buchnevich, Sergei Tolchinski, Alexander Sharov, Vladislav Kamenev and Vyacheslav Leshenko scored for Russia.The win moves Russia (2-0 with one shootout win) past the Swiss (1-1) into second place in Group B. The Russians meet the unbeaten Swedes (2-0) on Monday.The Russians, bronze medallist a year ago, opened the tournament with a 3-2 shootout win over unheralded Denmark. The Swiss, seventh last time out, beat the Czechs 5-2 for the first time at the tournament since 1998.Russian coach Valeri Bragin said there was no panic in his camp after the tough tournament opener.I didnt say anything (to the team), he said. It was the first game.The Russians were outshot but made the most of their scoring chances, as evidenced by two goals on four shots in the second period. Russia led 3-0 after the first period and 5-0 after a second period in which it was outshot 14-4.Russia was penalized repeatedly in the second period, with Bragin saying diplomatically through an interpreter afterwards that there might have been some discrepancies in calls made.Referee is referee, the coach said in English with a wry smile.Anatoli Golyshev was ejected for the blindside hit on Baltisberger, given a five-minute interference penalty that carried an automatic game misconduct. There was no immediate word on the Guelph Storm defenceman, who was able to move but was taken to hospital nevertheless.Its difficult when one of your players goes down like that, said Fust. Hes a very popular player ... Obviously Its a point where you can rally around but the fact that he stayed on the ice that long, were all human and we were all worried about him and we didnt get a diagnosis right away.It probably did have an effect, to take a little bit of the air out of the tires for us. But thats no excuse, you have to play through those situations.Swiss captain Yannick Rathgeb, who saw a player paralysed in a game two years ago in his home town in Switzerland, was happy to report after the game that his teammate had a sore neck but was able to move. There was confusion as Baltisberger lay prone on the ice. Fust said initially there was no penalty called they were told because nobody saw it, while Bragin said the initial call was a minor penalty which escalated once the player remained down.Bragin said he had not seen the hit but the feeling on his bench was that it was not a hit to the head.Fusts camp saw it differently.I have not seen the replay yet but I was told by people that did see it that it was a head-shot as well, the Swiss coach said. Well have to obviously see what happens with that. There will be a hearing on the hit.The Golyshev major coincided with a minor penalty that gave the Swiss a five-on-three for more than one minute.We were a little lucky and Shestyorkin played very well, said Bragin.Tolchinski, with a rare Russian shot, made it 4-0 at 15:29 as the Swiss were punished for another turnover.Sharov added a fifth Russian goal at 17:36, beating Descloux with a wrist shot after a nifty move at the blue-line to elude a defender.Kamenev and Leshenko padded the lead late in the third period.The guys can still hold their heads up high, said Fust, whose young team has an off-day before facing Denmark on Tuesday. It wasnt a 7-0 game. But we need to improve.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Antoine Walker Jersey . With the win, the Marlies complete a three-game series sweep of the Admirals and move on to the second round of the Calder Cup playoffs. T.J. Brennan added an empty netter with less than 25 seconds remaining for his second of the playoffs.

It was Valanciunass team-best 14th double-double of the season.DeMar was going to find his legs at the right time and he did tonight, said Raptors head coach Dwane Casey. I thought Jonas came in and gave us a good presence inside offensively, so I was really pleased with our overall offensive production.All-star point guard Kyle Lowry had 11 points and eight assists for the Raptors. He addressed the sold-out crowd from halfcourt before the game, thanking them for their support in voting him a starter in the NBA All-Star game. He received a standing ovation as he promised to represent Toronto and Canada to the best of his abilities.D.J. Augustin led Detroit (17-28) with a career-high 35 points. He added eight assists and four rebounds, substituting for the injured Brandon Jennings.When you come out early and play a lot of minutes you get more comfortable rather than coming off the bench, said Augustin. You get a rhythm quicker and you are able to play through that rhythm.Before the game Detroit confirmed that Jennings would be out for the rest of the season with a torn Achilles tendon. He was injured in the Pistons 101-86 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night. Jennings averaged 15.7 points and 6.7 assists per game before getting hurt.Augustins career performance jeopardized the Raptors victory late in the fourth quarter.DeRozan drained two free throws with 1:58 left to play in the fourth to give Toronto a 105-99 lead.

DeRozan sank his second free throw for a 110-104 lead.I almost forgot how I used to get to the free-throw line said DeRozan with a laugh. He went 8 for 10 at the line on Sunday. It felt good. I just wanted to go out there and be aggressive.Augustin made a driving layup for the Pistons and on the next possession. Meeks again fouled a Raptor, this time sending Lowry to the line.Lowry made both of his free throws as chants of M-V-P rained down from the stands.

He had a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds with 8:59 left in the third.Augustin replied for Detroit, dropping a pull-up jump shot with 5:05 remaining in the quarter to reduce the Pistons deficit to 75-70, forcing Toronto to call a full timeout on its next possession. That huddle seemed to settle the Raptors, who controlled play for the rest of the quarter.Valanciunas had eight points and five rebounds in the third alone, as Toronto maintained its double-digit lead, 89-79.I was just active. I was just going everywhere, said Valanciunas. To be a successful rebounder youve got to be active.
