First Olympic Shot Fired

from R-Sport,

The Russia team that won this weekend's Euro Hockey Tour stage is capable of beating the Canadians and triumphing at the Sochi Olympics, Russian Hockey Federation president and legendary Soviet goaltender Vladislav Tretiak said Sunday.

A team packed with NHL stars including Alex Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin blazed through the Channel One Cup beating Finland, Sweden and the Czech Republic with an aggregated scoreline of 14-2.

Beating the Canadians? Why not?" Tretiak said. "This team can win. With slick, clinical and stable play, of course it can."
