Russia Upset By Slovakia

Just a quick blurb about the Russian vs Slovak game.

Well….you thought the Canadians were in danger of losing last nite? Well check out the Russians whom lost to Slovakia in a shootout in which Ovechkin took three turns at the shootout, only scoring once. Now that was an interesting game as coach Bykov seems intent on rolling a 4 line team rather than riding his best players as much as he can.

Granted Slovakia has much more NHL talent than the Swiss, but this is the offensive juggernaught Russian team we are talking about! Plus they lost, they didn’t win in the shootout which makes this far more interesting of a tournament now.

Whats with the Russians attempting the dump and chase strategy though?
