Perspective: the Lion is shockingly bad balance Russian guest - the reason for their own choices
Lions first time they got big thrills and rugged to learn, write to Sasha Huttunen from st. Petersburg.Peter Krestovski-the stadium was a record 71 381 spectators. The end the crowd rose to a huge Anatoly Tarasov -the banner. AOP

No one EHT in-game result doesn't matter, but miserable to melt the Finnish resistance st. Petersburg high in the stadium-match.

the first batch was still smooth, but the second one, since the ice was only one team that passed on attacks and barn paints. The lions ' role was in the posturing and melancholy change in the cast.

the final Result 5-0 doesn't tell so much between Finland and Russia the level differences, but SM-liiga and the KHL. The gap is huge.

Kirill Kaprizov, Mikhail Grigorenko and partners make KooKoo - and especially the old man at the expense of what they wanted.


the Lions have silenced the Russian home crowd of the value of the world championships in tricks, which can remember. Mikko Koivu hit the Finnish finals in moscow in 2007, Mikko Koskinen stopped Alexander Ovetshkinin breakaway in the same city in 2016, which also boosted the blue-white end of the match and ruined the Russian domestic championship, once again.

And who could forget Sochi, with Teemu Selanne and Mikael Granlund dabbling putin's favorite child out for gold hunt.

But russia's EHT tournament in Finland, the balance against Russia is shockingly bad. 2010-century encounters there have been nine - and Finland has lost eight of them!

the loss of a few has become the crushing season as of yesterday. The only victory is a 3-2-compression December 2013.


Poor balance is the reason. Izvestia tournament was legendary, but the current Moscow EHT-tournament - officially called the Channel One Cup - is the finns would say it nihkein tick through the cycle, almost a necessary evil.

There is traditionally sent to the trial team, so this time too. The first time was eight and the whole team of potential world cup players, maybe half of it.

the Lions on November the Karjala tournament is the domestic tournament of the important and real WORLD mapping began only in February of Sweden from the tournament.

Russia, in turn, marched to his own home to his tournament with the best possible list of names, naturally. Yesterday the star of glory was only missing Pavel Datsyuk, she, too, due to injury.


russia to blame, but Krestovski-the stadium, the arrangements were elegant. Having read made to honor one hundred years ago born coach legend Anatoly Tarasoville (1918-1995) and the ice went to legends Vladislav names himself sir tretiakin and us finns and our dear Vladimir Jursinov from. Tarasovin daughter, a figure skating coach Tatyana Tarasova made a speech and kept the 71 381 -at the ends of a record crowd.

a Big part of the game, the human mass was a covered stadium rather quiet, but when the Ros-si-and-cry began resounding, it was hard not to be impressed.

Just the traditional ”get-bu” was missing, maybe because the paint is not needed to separately require.
