    Could go either way, Pastrnak & Krejci would be huge additions for the Czechs this game.

    The same can be said about Gusev for Russia. But it looks like he isn't going to play as well.

    He's a big addition for sure, but he's much closer to Krejci than he is Pastrnak who is a game-changer for the Czechs. I'd much rather want Kovalchuk if I was Russian.

    Having Gusev is better. With all the due respect to Kovalchuk of course

    Better goalscoring vs. better playmaking. Not too confident in Russia's goalscoring against other top teams, which is why I'd want Kovalchuk.

    They arrived at the airport 8:45 this morning but apparently neither of them managed to sleep on the plane. Took part in a half-hour skate around noon, but I'd say it's more likely they'll be too tired to play - if they did play they probably wouldn't be at full strength. It'll be up to them after an afternoon nap :)

    Yeah, sorry, but Gusev can score pretty good and is way more creative player.

    Hope Gusev is ready
    3-0 Russia ( this team never let in a goal you know 20-0 in 3 games )

    Kaprizov , Pavel and Gusev if he plays will score.

    I'd be shocked if the Czechs don't score, 0 GA in 3 games doesn't matter if it was against teams like Austria, France, & Belarus(neither of which scored against Sweden, but the Czechs did).

    I think this will be a much closer game for Team Russia than their first three. Usually the Czechs are an uncomfortable team for Russia to play against. I think something like 3-2 Russia, we'll see.

    Huh? Ovi is an incredible player but I don't suppose he could be in a state of quantum superposition and play in the NHL play-offs and in Dennmark at the same time.

    I think we can actually win this one. 4-2 Czechs.

    Agree! Apart from few exceptions (Voracek, Hertl, Palat) this is as deep as it gets offensively for us :)
