The Russians, by contrast, were listless and emotionally flat in that game, but it will be interesting to see if they are hungry and flying around the ice this time around. At a minimum, the Russian goaltending will no doubt be much improved.
ee and that is their big question mark imo. Can russia goalies match up to Canada ? I don't think they can not when we can throw fluery ward price etc in net. Canada aside though russia can't match miller thomas howard or lundquivst or kipper or backstrom. Going into 2014 russia doesn't have the goalies other teams do. I could easily seem not getting a medal again
