Russia wins 8-2 - Geno gets a goal and assist, no points for Gonch. Interestingly, Malkin is playing with Afinogenov and Kovalchuk, and Captain Ug is playing with Fedorov and Semin. I thought for sure they'd put Malkin, Kovalchuk and Ug on the same line. Then again, both Ug and Kovalchuk are LW, so it makes sense to split them up.
So today's stat lines for the Pens: Sid 3 A, Geno 1+1, Gonch and Brooks no points, and Fleury DNP (and probably won't see any action at all with Luongo and Brodeur on the team).
Today, the hated Jaromir Jagr and the Czech Republic will take on the equally hated Marian Hossa and Slovakia. Here's hoping they both break a leg. HTG will get to see her favorite player Zdeno Chara in action, too, for the Slovakian team
