The reigning world champions thrashed their opponents, 8-2.

Aleksandr Ovechkin and Danis Zaripov each claimed a brace, Ilya Kovalchuk and Evgeny Malkin had a goal and an assist each, and Sergey Fedorov came off the rink with two assists under his belt.

The only disappointment this evening was Evgeny Nabokov’s might-have-been shootout.

“It is only the first game, but I am sure it will be different in the second game. We have to play desperate,” Kovalchuk assured after the game.

“A few things we would like to change. But it’s the first game,” said defender Sergey Gonchar, echoing Kovalchuk. “Still, I like what we had,” he added.
