the national Team of Russia on hockey lost in the third stage of the Eurotour. Our players scored only one point in three matches and took the last place.
Dramatic was the match against the Czech Republic. Our players three times took the lead, but the Czechs battled back three times. The Czech team evened the score two seconds before the end of normal time. The extra period did not reveal the winner, and the shootout is better performed by the Czechs.
the Main coach of Russian national team Alexei Kudashov called the defeat of the offensive, but found positives in the play of the Russians. “You need experience to win such games and avoid children’s mistakes. The third game was a little better. There was confidence, was viewed as a game,” quoted Kudashov TASS.
