Red Wings at the World Championship: Datsyuk registers 2 assists in wild Russian win

At the World Championship, Russia defeated Kazakhstan 6-4; Pavel Datsyuk had 2 assists and a shot in 14:17 of ice time, and Alexey Marchenko took a shot in 5:46 of ice time. Datsyuk spoke with IIHF.com's Andrew Podnieks after the game...

"Our first game [against the Czechs] was really emotional," offered captain Pavel Datsyuk. "Today we were a bit calmer but we still made a lot of mistakes. When we started scoring we gained in confidence."

Here are the game's highlights, from the IIHF's YouTube channel:

You can read translations of Datsyuk speaking with Sovetsky Sport, Sport-Express and Championat--all quoting Datsyuk as explaining that his IIHF.com interview stated that his recovery process is in its 10th month out of 18, and that his feet don't hurt from last June's surgery--if you wish.

Update: Teemu Pulkkinen was held without a shot in 15:11 of ice time as Finland defeated Germany 5-1.

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
