Kukla's Korner Hockey

All Brian Burke, Russian Style

from Andrey Kuznetsov of Sport-Express (rough translation),

- What do you expect from Saturday's meeting Russian - U.S.?

- Classroom game. It will, if you will, hockey gold standard. In Russian the strongest goalkeepers and many superstars in the attack. The main thing that you guys with the first match look like a superstar. I mean, that hosts the Olympics like me already at the start of the tournament. Russian looked cool.

- Americans, perhaps, not worse. For applicants for gold is not dangerous to begin such a comfortable win?

- If you are on our own, no. Team, all accustomed to the idea "to go on, need to win each of the next meeting." Therefore, the U.S. has always set the cup. On the day of the fight with the Russian - especially. Besides no one deceive 7-1. Slovaks fought honorably, but after our scored twice in a minute, parted and lost hope of success. Let's see what can four quick link Americans against Russian craftsmanship.
