First Euro Cup - Russia beats Sweeden

MOSCOW (AP) -- Viktor Kozlov netted a goal and set up two more Sunday as Russia beat Sweden 5-2 to win its first Euro Hockey Tour title.

Russia took the title 7-3 on aggregate, having won the first game of a two-game final 2-1 in Stockholm on Friday. The win was Russia's first major success since winning the world championship in 1993.

Sweden won its only title in the Euro Hockey Tour in 1998-99. Finland has won the title six times since the inaugural tournament in 1996-97.
