from Mike Brophy of CBC,
None of Russia’s big guns – Alexander Ovechkin, Engeni Malkin and Ilya Kovalchuk – produced any big games. Malkin had a goal and three points, Ovechkin a goal and two points and Kovalchuk just one goal in the three games.
Russian coach Zinetula Bilyaltetinov said he is even considering playing Ovechkin on defence in an effort to get him going.
“I will think about it,” Bilyaltetinov said. “There is no doubt that we want to score more goals because we have high-quality players who can play in different positions. We might look into a change or two, but there will not be any major changes.”
a bit more on Russia and a look and basically a recap of Sweden, USA and Canada in the preliminary round...
