    So Orlov who shouldn't be playing today because he should have been suspended after yesterday?

    What a point of playing with fire, if it's just 1-0...

    You expect to win every game with 5+ goals?

    A little push from the Swiss and they go to the powerplay.

    Why does Russia have to play dirty in a game they are dominating?

    Russia doesn't, it's Zadorov.

    Zadonov should also have been suspended after his foul yesterday vs. Latvia.

    Kovalchuk was lucky he didn't get a 2 min unsportsmanlike penalty as well. Zadorov could've had a 5 min major and a game misconduct from that penalty, that was so uncalled for. Still a deserved 1-0 lead for Russia.

    It works in their favor though. Playing dirty and aggressively is a great strategy. Puts fear into the opponents.

    If one team doesn't deserve the title, it's Russia. After yesterday and today. This has no place at a WC. And the IIHF accepts it.

    You hate Russia or something?

    I've not seen any dirty play by Russia so far...

    Switzerland doing good so far!

    I wouldn't mind it if they were holding on to the same standards.

    But the IIHF commission actually disqualified a Latvian player after a post-game video review.

    Russia didn't even get a 2 min penalty for a rougher illegal hit. There should've been 3 disqualifications by now.

    I'm not a conspiracy nut, but this is just blatantly unfair and inconsequential.
