01/05/2006 Canada returns favor, beats Russia 5:0

For the second year in a row Canada has skated away with the gold medals. Heavy favorites last year, the Canadians were expected to field a weaker team in 2006. Still, the squad beat those expectations and won the gold, handing the Russians a resounding 5:0 shellacking. Still, the game was not without controversy, as Russia actually scored a goal when down 0:2, but the referees did not see it and the goal was not counted, even though the replays clearly showed the puck crossing the line. Now, Canada has returned Russia the favor by winning to golds against in just as many years, the same feat Russia achieved in 2002 and 2003 when beating Canada both times in the finals for the gold.

12/25/2005 Russia edges the Swiss team 5:0 in a friendly

Team Russia skated to a 5:0 victory against the Swiss national team. While the opponent was obviously not nearly as strong as the Canadians who trounced the Russians 8:1 just a night earlier, it was a welcome site to see the Russian squad play with a little more cohesion. Evgeni Malkin (Pittsburgh Penguins) skated for just one period, which was more that anticipated, as he was expected to skip on all the friendly games. Team Russia’s goals were scored by Kiril Lyamin (2), Ilya Zubov (both Ottawa Senators), Sergei Ogorodnikov (New York Islanders), and Sergei Shirokov. As reported earlier, Semen Varlamov was in net for Russia during the first two periods, before being replaced by Denis Khudobin in the third. Both goaltenders delivered solid performances and together earned a shutout. Varlamov was named the first star of the game.
12/25/2005 Team Russia cuts Parshin (Colorado), Shitikov and Kasutin

Team Russia finally trimmed the roster to the required 22 players by sending goaltender Ivan Kasutin, and forwards Dmitri Shitikov and Denis Parshin (Colorado Avalanche) packing. While some might guess that Kasutin’s fate was sealed after his terrible third period debut in the friendly game against Canada, but in fact it was sealed later, when the 17 year old goaltender Semen Varlamov earned a shutout for Russia in the second and final friendly contest against Switzerland. The departure of Shitikov and Parshin is no surprise, as the two young forwards were not assigned to any particular line throughout the tournament. A winger, Denis Parshin even centered the top line against Canada. Overall, the decisions made perfect sense, as Parshin and Shitikov have not shown enough during the training camp to merit their retainment. Additionally, both forwards are defensive liabilities due to their size and offensively minded style of play. Parshin struggled heftily last season at the U20 WJC, being relegated to the fourth line from Malkin’s second line. Not much has changed for him this season. Varlamov’s presence on the roster may give the Russian squad a long term goaltender, as he will be eligible for the U20 WJC through 2008. He may be the first Russian goaltender to hold the spot for multiple years since Andrei Medvedev (Calgary Flames), who lead Russia to two consecutive gold medals.
