MALMO, Sweden (AP) -- Buffalo Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen scored at 9:42 of overtime to give Finland its third world junior hockey title with a 3-2 win over Sweden on Sunday.

Ristolainen picked up the puck along the right boards, cut in front of the goal and slid a backhander under goalie Oscar Dansk's right leg pad. Finland also won the under-20 event in 1987 in Czechoslovakia and 1998 at home in Helsinki.

Finland's Era Lindell scored 28 seconds into the game, and Lucas Wallmark tied it on a power play at 7:53 of the second. Finland regained the lead 45 seconds later on Saku Maenalanen's goal.

In the third-place game, Russia beat Canada 2-1.
