I think a big part of Yakupov's lack of production today is coming down to coaching. Canada has figured out how to shut his line down and give him nothing on the PP but there has been no adjustment on the Russians part.

Yakupov has been noticeable in a negative way today because he's trying and failing. He's ALMOST making something happen but the Canadians are doing a great job of giving him little space. He's Canada's top defensive priority right now. The Russian coach needs to mix the strategy up a little here. Give the Canadians something they aren't expecting...
