Is a great success! We won, as expected, but the game has developed for us very hard. We can say, pulled out this victory. Germany played really well and competently, not only defended tightly, but also very much attacked our gate.
At the Olympics there are no easy teams. Perhaps we were mistaken in assessing the level of the German national team have underestimated her. We have best played link of Paul Datsyuk. Note game Nikita Gusev and Cyril Kaprizova. When a player performs in the final of the Olympics, scored himself and gives effective passes is a lot of things. The performance of this link, Gusev and his partners, helped to turn the tide of the match in our favor.
Without NHL players, the teams ‘ level was much lower, and this affected the results of the tournament. Just look at the teams of Sweden, Finland, Czech Republic, Canada, America. If it was Malkin and Ovechkin, they have significantly strengthened our team. Of course the players, “NHL” was very noticeable.
