Nice to see some temperament at the end there. Kuznetsov and Stene.

Did you watch their game against Canada? They were actually pretty decent. Yes Canada did slack off after a while, but Norway outshot Canada in the first period and had some nice scoring chances. the way the Russians are playing, and after losing their first 2 and being demorilized, it's possible. it would definately be embarrassing but not as much as most would think. watching the game now here it's actually pretty even, Russia are getting chances and so are Norway. I can see Norway beating Germany or Slovakia in the relegation round

Shots were 10-9 Russia

They need to beat both if they want to stay there for another year. Very unlikely, but I think they are doing very well compared to other teams who came up lately.

Mu Question is why isnt the Russia squad this year as good as they have been in the past. Is it because of the strong pool they are in? or just not that good of a squad this year?

yep. on paper the team looks pretty good. i think against canada they had some really good moments. it's just that they don't seem to be able to play up to their talent for complete games. maybe it's coaching. russian coaching is still so awful and killing so many good russian teams.

This was pretty much the same Russian squad that won 4 of 6 games last month in the CHL Super Series.

IMHO... if Russia (and other countries) continue to play the political games and not include the best players (regardless where they are playing) on their teams, they won't be able to compete in these international tournaments.

In the OHL alone, Namestikov and Khokhlachev would easily be in their top 5 best players.

This stream broke down too. Just when Norway was on the PP. Russia leads 3-2 at the moment.

2nd period over, still 3-2, Russia was better and controlled the play more in that period, but if Norway and sneak a goal in the 3rd, anything can happen

Russia Scored

not sure, but I think Sobchenko just got a 10 minute misconduct which means he'll miss tomorrow's game?

Ouch, we were in this game in 40 minutes. Guess the guys are tired after a tough game last night.

8-2 is the final score. I only managed to start watching when the score was 3-2, so I don't know what happened earlier, but it was all Russia in the 2nd and 3rd periods.

Still made a couple silly mistakes that against a stronger opponent could've led to goals against and took some unnecessary penalties, so there's a lot of work left for Bragin ahead of tomorrow's game.

Hopefully the 8 goals will give the scorers some confidence and momentum though and we can take this offensive prowess into the game against the Czechs.
