Oleg Znarok is no more the Russian NT coach :yikes:


Being Head Coach to both SKA & Team Russia can be a challenge, even if the players are mostly same

Oh well, he got the gold that counted :p 

 

well, there a huge difference between Russian NT before Znaroks and Russian NT under Znaroks. Russian players may be extremely skilled and fantastic players but they are also too much individualists, they always struggled because of this, It was always the same, impossible to see a formed group, in the crucial moments the stars tried to solve everything individually (like the notorious "I no need anyone" Alex Radulov) but this changed under Znaroks, the players respected him, maybe because they were too scared, I admit I would too, the guy is a bit sick :p

Now you can expect the return of Anarchy in the Russian NT, many small groups killing the compact united force of the team

AK Bars and CSKA are playing the OT in game #3 of the KHL final series (AK Bars won the first 2 games at home, both with the score of 2-1)...

by the way, the score is 2-2 after 60 mins (we're now at the 71st minute, OT included)...

 

today there are also many other National Leagues final series under way...

 

in Slovakia, Banskà Bystrica could close the series against Dukla Trencin, as they lost today's game #4 at home by a score of 4-2.

However they still lead 3-1 and will have 3 more chances to successfully defend their title.

 

in the Czech Republic, Kometa Brno won 3-2 the 3rd game of the series and now they lead 2-1 in the final series against Ocelari Trinec.

Game #4 is scheduled for tomorrow, once again in Brno.

 

in Germany, Eisbären Berlin and Red Bull Munich are playing right now their game #3 (series tied 1-1, Munich 3-1 ahead at the beginning of the 3rd period in game #3).

 

In Switzerland, Zurich and Lugano are playing right now in Zurich game #4 of their final series...and Zurich is leading the series 2-1 (but Lugano is 2-1 ahead halfway through the second period in game #4).

 

In Sweden and Finland today there are no games, but we are at the climax also in those leagues.

In Sweden, Växjö Lakers HC are leading 1-0 in the final series against Skellefteå, meanwhile in Finland the finals are between Kärpät Oulu and Tappara Tampere, with the first leading 1-0 in the series.

In both those leagues, game #2 of the finals is scheduled for tomorrow.

 

 

p.s. I'm just going crazy while I'm trying to watch KHL, DEL and NLA games at the same time between TV and PC...:yikes::facepalm:

by the way, in my previous recap I forgot the EBEL final series...Red Bull Salzburg and HC Bolzano/Bozen Foxies are putting on quite a show and are now tied 3-3.

Tomorrow night (puck drop @ 20.20 CET, live for free on Servus TV HD official page on Youtube) in Salzburg a thrilling and decisive game #7 will end up this year's championship.

I just can't wait for that one...:bounce:
