    It is okay. They have a game in little more than than 24h and it's not against Austria. They should not waste any energy or risk injuries.

    Vorobiev is still an annoyance. Why taking Kaprizov of that line? If anything Kuznetsov is sleepwalking and Ovechkin's effort is at 20%.

    Russia is never good in group play. This is well known. They get better later on.

    Russia's attitude issues are legendary at this point.

    I still think Austria is quite solid, definitely better than Italy and GB, they should stay in elitě.

    Telegin's 1st touch of the tournament and 1st goal. And Gusev + Kucherov = Magic.

    Russians are clearly saving strength, not taking any chances and still dominating :D

    Gusev and Kuch are working well together. Barabanov playing well. Far too many other players are anonymous. Still sloppy with the passing at times and decision making. Excuses ? They would not have got away with this in the Soviet days.

    I'd say, they are looking for chemistry, than saving strength.

    5-0 and heading for Russian power play but gotta say Austria has played well and Starkbaum has been very solid.

    Goalie is the best Austrian player. Considering, it's 5-0, it says something about the game.

    Decent result but lots of things to work on. If they play like that tomorrow Czechia will probably win.

    I just want to see Barabanov in the NHL one day. I'm 90% sure, he'll become a fan favorite. Just a fabulous skater with magic hands, very gritty and high IQ. If only his shot was decent at least, he'd be a player of Gusev calibre...

    I agree, they lack cohesion.

    Hopefully we will see new lines soon. Pairing Malkin with Kucherov would be a good start.

    Lol, Gusev - Anisimov - Kucherov was the best line for us, and Grigorenko - Malkin - Dadonov weren't much worse. It's Kuznetsov's line, that didn't work, but Barabanov added some fire to them.
