The first period was at advantage of the Russians, but the account was not opened. The main events took place in the second dvadtsatiminutke. Shortly after the break, the Russians won the majority and did not pull its implementation. Pavel Datsyuk cast below the bar opened the scoring.

Build on this success came in the 27th minute. Once again, the Russian team has implemented a numerical advantage. Objectives achieved throw Denis Denisov from the blue line. It seemed that the opponent broken. But the easy victory was not possible.

Soon, the Russian team was followed by removal of one and then the other. And five of the Norwegians managed to cope with three Russians. Clicking Morten Ask and the score was 2-1. And then, after a minute Per-Aage Skreder second time sent the puck into the goal Semyon Varlamov. Fortunately, the goal was scored in violation of the rules and was not counted.

Russian national hockey team held the third match of the World Cup in Sweden and won a third victory. Wards Zinetula Bilyaletdinov team beat Germany with a minimum score 2-0. BBC News and the channel "Russia 2" are broadcast to the world championship.

 

 

Match was difficult and stubborn. Opponents took to the ice, remembering two equal semi-official game at a recent tournament, the European call and the appointment that at last year’s world championships won our opponents (2-0). So, the coaching staff of the Russian team knew that the opponent in the third game after the teams of Latvia and Norway we got complicated.

The game was also the anniversary: since the Soviet team games under our flags of the USSR and Russia against Germany played 99 matches. The bill eventually turned exact mirror image of the one-year-old …

The first period was in general an equal fight, and the number of shots on goal by the Germans of our players have even passed (13:8). But you have to give credit to defensive lines of both teams: a long time, goalies Varlamov and Kochneva serious work was not. And only at the very end of our 20-minute managed to realize some benefit in the classroom: Zherdev after the transfer Malkin and shots on goal Medvedev touched up the puck in the net. "Goal in the locker room," was to give our little psychological advantage early in the second period.

However, contrary to our expectations, and on the second leg match faced the rugged defense of the hosts. And, although the Russians seized the advantage in the number of shots on goal (10:7), to catch the goalkeeper by surprise Kochneva again could not manage. In addition, the coach Bilyaletdinov had to make adjustments in the composition, as in the early 20-minute quarterback Emelin injured. As a result the score remained minimal, and everything had to be solved in the third period …

The third segment of the meeting took place more fun the first two, the teams were more likely to play on a collision course with Varlamov and Kochnev become much more work. Our Emelin returned to the ice, so that the reduction of six defencists happened. However, as time went on, and Zherdev was the only goal. But as soon as the stopwatch to measure out half of the final third of the match, with both transmissions Shirokov and Zherdev Goal Scorer Tereshchenko. This happened at a time when the Germans had removed the player. But it was clear that the German team at the end of the game will go for broke …

So basically it happened, but before the 57th minute the
Russians almost did not give the opponent a chance to start a meaningful attack. A 2.48 until the end of our Emelin was removed and the German team got a chance to at least a "soak" tab. But Varlamov worked out a couple of nice saves and he eventually stood up "to zero". 2-0 in favor of the Russian team.
 

Who did not see, enjoy!
