Yeah, when Kovy goes in and is surrounded by other guys, he would turn back and look for his teammates. Earlier in his career, he would just try to go through those guys and try to shoot the puck. It's nice to see he's getting better.

That was far more entertaining match than I think a 6-1 game could've been. Germany played like a strong competitor. I hope they win bronze... they'll deserve it. And the Kovy-Datsyuk-Malkin line has been one of Bykov's most genius creations ever. Kovalchuk is leading the tournament in scoring now, but Malkin and Datsyuk are absolutely hungry to win with Russia... after all,, they weren't part of the '08 and '09 wins.

Russians lack stability. This could have ended 4:1 or 3:1 at least

Maybe Ovechkin is a shadow because of this

I think it's funny how you can build up new expectations during the game. Before the game I was hoping Germany could keep the score close as long as possible. In the end I was so upset about Datsyuk's late goal, that I even skipped watching the soccer game :-) Don't worry, I calmed down and I am really proud of what Team Germany showed tonight.

Yep it turns out that a player in his early 20s can get tired from playing an NHL season, Olympics and playoffs.

Don't get me wrong good for Ovechkin for playing but he has played a lot of hockey this year and it shows.

I don't know why they didn't rest Ovechkin for this game his groins obviously still sore
As a caps fan I wish he stayed home like Crosby did I feel the rest would be beneficial to him.
I like that Varlamov went though the experience will help him and from the games I've watched he's been very good (other than the weak goal at the end of the canada game)

Although it is sad to loose after such a closed game, we can be really proud of what the German team had shown.

How many shots did the Russians and Germans had?

Yes, in 4 games together they combined for 10 goals and 22 points and if I am not mistaken they were on ice for none goals against during that time ... pretty impressive.

A German victory would now reach miracle-on-ice-calibre.
