MOSCOW (Reuters) - Holders Canada reached a world championship final against Finland by beating rivals the United States 4-3 thanks to Ryan Ellis' goal early in the third period of a pulsating match.

The Finns won 3-1 as they overcame hosts Russia in the other semi-final just as they did at the Sochi Olympics two years ago.
