SHERBROOKE, Que. -- Anthony Duclair's goal lifted the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League past Russia 4-3 in the Subway Super Series on Wednesday.

The result gave the QMJHL a two-game sweep of the Russians after a 3-2 win Monday.

The teams were tied 3-3 when Duclair, a Quebec Remparts forward, scored at 12:26 of the third period to put his side ahead for good.

Daniel Audette, Anthony Mantha and Christopher Clapperton also scored for the QMJHL, which traded goals with Russia and never led by more than one.

Mark Skutar, Igor Rudenkov and Ivan Barbashev had a goal each for Russia, which next opens a two-game series with the Ontario Hockey League on Thursday.

Sebastien Auger stopped 22 saves for the QMJHL, while Russia's Igor Shesterkin allowed all four goals on 41 shots.

The first period was busy with the teams splitting two goals apiece.

Audette gave the QMJHL a lead just 3:11 into the game, but Russia tied it up on a power-play goal by Skutar at 13:57.

Just under three minutes later Mantha restored the lead with a power-play goal of his own, but Rudenkov tied the game with eight seconds left in the period.

The QMJHL didn't wait long to grab the lead again. Clapperton put his team ahead 3-2 4:33 into the second, but Russia again responded on a goal by Berbashev at 9:58.

That was the last goal Auger would allow, and the QMJHL's defence held on when Duclair scored in the third.
