He did make some nice passes which were generally mishandled but by and large he was off and visibly frustrated.
I'm sure that Yak himself would say that he is disappointed in his play
Agreed that he didnt show his usual aggression and intensity he normally plays with. At the WJC last year he didnt play with that intensity either. Seems like he played hard with team clubs tho. Maybe he doesnt get intense when playing for russia
