In the first game of Channel One Cup Finland beat the Czechs 4-3. Finland got an early lead at 3:16 when Tony Sund approached the net from behind and put the puck past the Czech netminder Dominik Furch. Even if the game was close Finland was in the lead almost the entire game. Lukas Jasek tied it on a deflection at 12:10 in his first game for the national team but Finland regained the lead a few minutes later when Mikael Ruohomaa scored on a beautiful pass from Jere Karjalainen.

With a deflection Karjalainen then increased the lead two minutes into the middle period but just a few seconds later Dominik Lakatos fired a nice shot to make it 3-2. The Finnish power-play made the difference today and Otso Rantakari scored 4-2 with a heavy shot from the left wing with a man more on the ice. The Czechs got closer once again when Dmitrij Jaskin made it 4-3 from between the circles on a 2-man-advantage at 34:46 but the final 25 minutes of the game saw no more goals and Finland won the game.

The second game of the day was also a close one where Russia finally beat Sweden 4-3 after a shootout where Andrei Kuzmenko got the winner.

Sweden was in the lead twice. After a scoreless first period Pontus Åberg got his first goal for Tre Kronor with a bit of luck. The shot from Klas Dahlbäck touched a defender and then bounced off Åberg's back past Alexander Samonov in Russia's net. Andrei Kuzmenko tied it ten minutes later after a stunning passing combination with Ivan Morozov and Yegor Yakovlev.

Emil Pettersson took back the lead for Sweden at 46:36 but Nikita Soshnikov and Vadim Shipachyov scored in the middle of period three to take Russia ahead. Sweden tied it again with 4:27 remaining of regulation when Emil Larsson scored on a rebound.

After an overtime period with not much of action the game was decided in a shootout where Nikita Soshnikov and Andrei Kuzmenko scored for Russia while Emil Larsson got the only Swedish goal.
