Russia beat United States 6-1

May 12th, 2014 by SportInfo

Viktor Tikhonov scored twice and Alex Ovechkin added a goal and two assists Monday as Russia routed the United States 6-1 for its third straight victory at the ice hockey 2014 World Hockey Championships holding in MINSK, Belarus.

“We’re a good team, we have a good atmosphere in the dressing room,” Kolyomin said. ”Everybody’s ready to work hard and do his best for the team.”

“We’ve got to learn from this game, hopefully be a better team,” Abdelkader said. ”It’s a good learning experience for us to learn to see how a team plays, like Russia. Russia is a really good team. Their goalie played tremendous for them.”

The joke (you can see bellow) has been appeared immediately after the match


It was declared by the speaker of US State department J. Psaki:

“This match had nothing in common with the real fair hockey. In 21 century it is impossible to play hockey as if it is the 20th century outside . Imperial ambitions of Russian national team are visually seen in methods of conducting game as it was in the worst years of the USSR existence: the dirty roundabout of Russian team near gate of The US national team and blocking democratic washers against the Russian gate it is the attempt of revision of the latest history and threat to the all-European safety. ”

After this JEN. Psaki was asked by journalists – ” the roundabout what does it mean ?” The answer was – “I dont know what a roundabout means , but it is so written in the text and I am sure that it is something awful and incompatible with universal values: “We have no doubts that Russia is behind all of this , and Putin’s recent participation in the so-called “Night hockey league” match where he personally threw 6 goals in gate of the opponent – is the evidence .

Now all his bloody plan becomes obvious, all this was planned by Russia from the beginning. ”
She also declared that the president Obama expressed deep concern about results of the game and declared that “Russia already is not only on the wrong party of history, but also on the wrong part of geography, physics and physical culture. ”

Also she reported that sanctions against the players of Russian national team will be immediately implemented : “We, together with all our European partners around the world, made the decision of introduction immediate extensive economic sanctions against persons directly involved in this disgusting event. Russia will pay high price for it. We have made a difficult decision: ” all discount cards of Russian national team players in the European and American networks of sports shops such as Reebok, Nike, Adidas will be frozen up to the next seasonal sales. Performers of imperial plans have to understand that they they can’t escape of hard punishing”

Separately Mrs. Psaki noted defiantly shaved hockey player Ovechkin, as if it was the protest against the Eurovision: “This is the protest against the all-European values, against a choice of Europe! it is impossible In 21 century to shave just like if a beard is something unpleasant for you! It is inadmissible ! The beard must be returned immediately!”
