Russians Lose To Slovakia

It took a shootout like the Canada-Switzerland game, but the difference was, Canada was expected to win and eventually did. Russia was expected to beat Slovakia and didn’t, losing 2-1.

Habs Jaroslav Halak did the job for Slovakia, stopping the the firepower of the Russians, and Pavol Dimitra potted the eventual shootout winner. The Ovechkin, Malkin, Datsyuk, Kovalchuk guns were silent, and only Alex Morosov could beat Halak.

What a night.

One thought on “Russians Lose To Slovakia”

  1. Despit all their firepower, Ovechkin, Malkin, and Kovalchuk are actually historically bad at shootouts. Especially Ovechkin.

    Those Russian Capitals missed their Mike Knuble last night. They all seemed allergic to the front of the net ;D
