I am cautiosly optimistic about this one.
Kazakhstan obviously had this game in mind when they played Russia and Slovakia, meanwhile Belarus fought hard every game. We'll see if such long-term planning on Kazakhstan's part will pay off. I am expecting a close game.
3 : 1 Belarus
To win a game is for Kazachstan mission impossible with Goalkeeping from 3th Russian league Its time for Grabovsky to score finally some goals and Antonenko can add some too
Is possible to watch this game on the internet?
2nd russian league. not 3rd.
Koreshkovs strike back.
after first period. 1-1
shots: 17-6 Kaz-Bel
4-1 Belarus after 2. Kostitsyn missed a PS. Belarus with 3 PP goals and 1 SH.
5 minutes to play
I'd like to give props to Kazakhstan team. They gave Belarus everything it could handle in the first period (shots on goal: Belarus - 6, Kazakhstan - 17!). Fortunately we have Andrei Mezin in net.
Zadelenov's short-hander in the second period swung the momentum to Belarus and we were able to bury our chances.
Score 7 to 1 is definetely unfair to Kazakhstan. I'll take it though ;-)
Best of luck to Kazakhstan in remaining games!
Wow, I'm impressed by Belarus! They could cause a surprise in the next round!
Team Belarus has sure been impressive in this tournament.
That Grabovsky kid is gonna be a superstar in the nhl one day, mark my words.
Did you see the penalty shot goal he scored, carbon copy of the Kenta/Foppa/J.Jokinen deke.
And then they have Andrei "a-mezin" Mezin in goal, one of the best goalies at the world championships in recent years.
Anyone have a clip of the Grabovsky goal in penality shot ???
