    I really hate the new template. Even with Sweden's jerseys where they don't really utilize the template, it still looks worse than past years.

    Russia's whites are probably the only ones I kind of like.

    Alright if you want to be overly harsh on a 19 year old for one mistake and say that he needs to win multiple Conn Smythe’s to make up for it, go ahead.

    Very confident and well handled 3rd period for Russia. A deserved win.

    Eh, a decent game for Russia. But the finishing skills a tad rusty out there.

    Every international game thread is always hard to read
    So many cocky winning team fans and posts and salty losing team fans and posts
    Why not to win and lose with dignity

    Tough game, amazing how Swiss hockey rapidly has been raising lately

    The Swiss players worked very hard (us usually), but the Russians controlled virtually the entire game. Looking forward to another Russia-Canada game.

    It's called the ref panicked because he saw the stick in the mid section and the player acting like he was just bit by a poisonous snake. It wasn't a spear, it was nothing, it was just more amateur minor league embellishing and refereeing. It happens.

    If it was a spear it would of been five and a game and would Garner possible suspension

    Swiss penalty killing was very aggressive which gave Russian PP lots of troubles.

    Obviously Russia was the better team. Switzerland played a solid game, they'd have needed a good or very good game. And Special teams were the key. Russia had a lot of puck control in 5vs5 but not that many high scoring chances.

    Eh we lost but I'm not salty. Played well defensively and had our chances. We even could have won with a bit more luck and without that epic fail early in the 2nd but Russian special teams were too little too good today so they deserve to win. Much better than expected from our side and a good game.

    Without those 2 PP goals, and if Swiss PP would of worked, this game could of gone either way. Congrats Russia nevertheless.

    Agree, if Russia didn't score 3 goals, it wouldn't win the game.

    They are re-seeding after the QF's this year. Sweden is the #1 seed, Russia the 6th.

    They've changed the rules so the best peforming team in the RR faces the worst performing in the semis. If Sweden, Canada & USA makes it through then it'll be SWE-RUS & CAN-USA
