I know that some imbeciles from Canadian Television put a lot of undeserved blame on Russian coaches during the first Russia's game against Slovakia (they also today called Tretiak Vladimir) and that is why I want to tell to North American fans that today Russian coach outcoached Quinn and the company. Russians did not play their own game today but they played the game, which let them pretty comfortably beat Canada. Russia never looked in real trouble in this game and that is very impressive considering Canada played its best game of the tournament. Vladimir Krikunov is a great coach, he did create a fantastic atmosphere in the team and he made his players play their own best, just look at Kozlov's, Sushinsky's and Yashin's performance. Krikunov found a role for each player on this team and the players know what they actually should do on the ice.
