Excuse me while I drool imagining what Kuznetsov can do with Datsyuk feeding him.

....don;'t think this is televised though, unfortunately, will have to wait until the "playoff" games start too see them.

You're right loosing is for losers and that's what Team Latvia was doing pretty much every single tournament. So I wouldn't be that optimistic saying victory is a must. We can win but chances are meh.

Thank god you're not one of the Latvian players.

We've got a win and a loss against Russia this year. The total record against Russia in the Elite division is 2 wins/2 losses. So I'm not sure what you're talking about.

And, no, victory is not a must, fighting for victory is a must. If we will lay on the ice before pucks like Skrastiņš did, if we'll fight like a team, not letting the Russkies breathe, we will be victorious, no matter the result.

As for our Asian friend from Kemerovo, I'd advise you to prepare yourself for a little surprise.

Woo, someone knows where Kemerovo is!
I'd surely appreciate a good effort and a hard clean game from your team, and I expect this.

That was an obvious penalty. What does a player need to do for you to call it a trip? Kneeing major?
edit: Ha, I guess Nikitin's penalty was as clear as it gets for you and not nearly a dive?

Nikitin is just awful, he is much worse on big ice. Always late to the play, bad on 1-on-1s, stupid penalties.
Oh look what a softie by Varly.

"It's a goal-ah! It's a goal-ah! On the rink-ah!"

I think these guys are trying to call the play-by-play by watching only the video stream. The video started getting all choppy, and he actually stopped talking.

The Latvian coach looks familiar, doesn't he used to coach in the NHL? I can't remember where...
