Getzlaf scores winner as O'Reilly joins Team Canada

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ryan Getzlaf beat Sergei Bobrovsky on a breakaway at 3:29 of overtime to give Team Canada to a 3-2 victory over Team Russia in a World Cup of Hockey exhibition Wednesday night.
 
Bobrovsky made 45 stops, some of them spectacular, but couldn't wrangle the puck when Getzlaf slipped it between his pads during the 3-on-3 extra session.
 
John Tavares and Patrice Bergeron scored for Canada. Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby assisted on Bergeron's score while playing on home ice at Consol Energy Center.
 
Carey Price had 24 saves for Canada, which finished 2-1 in exhibitions before the eight-team tournament begins in Toronto this weekend.
 
Artemi Panarin had a goal and an assist for the Russians. Alexander Ovechkin also scored. Evgeni Malkin assisted on Ovechkin's goal to match longtime Pittsburgh teammate Crosby.
 
Sabres forward Ryan O'Reilly was credited with one hit in 13:06 of ice time.  It was his first game since being added to the roster on Tuesday to replace the injured Tyler Seguin.
