Only caught a few glimpses here and then so probably only seen them at their worst but Slovakia seemed to be able to just slip through and Russia were unable to clear it. Slovakia should work on their finishing.

Slovakian players working better as team than Czechs showed.
They have less players from CHL, isn't reason why ?

I believe he was suffering from enigmatitis. A very serious condition often caught by European hockey players who come to North America with no immunity.

I donīt think it has anything to do with CHL, honestly. I think itīs more that the Slovaks are aware of how much inferior they are compared to their opponents and therefore they realize playing as a team is their only option. I donīt think that the Czech players see themselves this way. Also I think that it is Bokrošī signature.
Last years Slovak team had 8 NA players and still had a pretty good team spirit under Bokroš.

Frankly, I can see why Swiss gave this Russian team run for their money couple of days ago.

good that we are winning, but Russians have been pretty wasteful with their chances

Russia seem very poor going forward and only able to take advantage of taking mistakes rather than creating there own.
