Team Russia Lacked Passion In Their Play

from RussianHockeyfans,

Russian coach Vyacheslav Bykov talked about the reasons of the loss to Slovakia, stated that not all players had passion, explained why Ovechkin had three shootout attempts and talked about power play units in an interview to Russia site gazeta.ru.

RussianHockeyfans.com offers you a translation.

What shortcomings of the team did you find out?

Bykov: “The players had no passion. It looked like it was a regular game for them.”

Ovechkin was turned on the whole game, made like five hits. Why weren’t other players pumped up?

Bykov: “Yes, Alexander was one of the players who tried to demonstrate their best during the whole game. Others were in shadow.”
