Definitely NOT the goalies fault at all. Russia played terrible defensively and they seemed like they just didn't care. Too many turnovers and boneheaded players by guys not named Tarasenko, Dvurechensky, Kuznetsov, Burdasov, Orlov, and Sobchenko led to too many odd man breaks and scoring chances.
Also they played so poorly that they were penalized and the Canadians capitalized. They didn't play with discipline and when they were on the PK the Russians didn't play organized, didn't pick up their man, and didn't take the blame. They were caught out of position too much and you just can't do that. ESPECIALLY against Team Canada.
Bobkov wasn't the problem in this game. Believe me, I was there.
