    WJHC: Russia - Canada 5:3

    WJHC U18: Russia - Canada 6:4

    WHC: Russia - Canada 2:1

    Considering that Russia also won the Subway SuperSeries, it's safe to say that this has been the best year for Russian hockey against Canadians since Soviet times.

    It's a nice stat, but it doesn't make up for Vancouver. Best-on-best is what really matters in my books.

    For sure a good year for the Ruskies.

    These things happen in cycles though, im sure not too far away will be seeing a sweep from Canada against Russia as well.

    Ha, Russia totally blows on WHC 2011. They were incredibly lucky to win against Canada today.

    The Canadians were lucky there wasn't a more definitive camera angle, or it would've been 3-1 Russia.

    They didn't look so good. That said, Canada had a few good players too.

    Congratulations? The WJHC was an amazing game. I love Kitsyn, really hope he ends up in the NHL. And that breakaway goal today was awesome.

    Pretty sure it should have been 3-1, too :laugh:

    Anyways, at least I got to watch some good hockey. Good luck the rest of the way, and look forward to next year and, more importantly, the Olympics a couple years after that.

    I'll be honest with you. For many Russians, beating Canada is as much as winning the gold medals. At least for me, that's the case. I won't be very disappointed if we don't win the gold as we defeated Canada on the way.

    I can understand the world juniors but why the world championships? Russia had a far superior team on paper.
     
  14. Congrats on beating Canada while most of our best players are still in the playoffs or hurt.

    Canada beat Russia in the Olympics were it really matters.Canada has also dominated the World Juniors for 5+ years,one fluky year doesn't mean much.

    Russia had like 17 or 18 shots. I think they were really lucky to get away with such a poor effort. That said, I expected Canada to play much better. Phaneuf's defensive ability is laughable.

    The final shots count was 37-20 in favor of Canada. That being said, Russia only had 4 shots in third period and scored 2 goals.

    However, that is always the case that Canada outshooting Russia badly. It's just the way the teams play. Canadians shoot whenever they get a chance and try to get a deflection or rebound while Russians try to shoot only when they think they have a decent chance at scoring.

    Yeah, first time ever. Before that one, the stats was so embarrassing for Russia that I don't even want to recall it.

    True. Canada vs USA had overtaken it until Russia won the WJC back in January.

    Really really really hope the NHL goes to Sochi.

    To be fair a lot of good Canadian players refuse to play in the tournament.

    Great for the sport.

    Poor effort from Canada today though.
