USA vs Russia: Super Powers Battle Takes Center Stage in Sochi

Team Russia: Home ice advantage will help Big Red

When the President of your Nation, that’s known for sending people to mines in Siberia for lessor evils than losing a hockey game, is paraphrased as saying “nothing short of an ice hockey Gold Medal is acceptable” you better pay attention. So far so good for the Russian Federation as Ovechkin, Malkin & Co. dispatched of an over-matched but gutsy Team Slovakia during their tournament opening 5-2 victory on Thursday.

Team USA: Not exactly a Miracle On Ice moment – A win here is huge

It was the blowout win most people expected as the USA registered a lopsided 7-1 win over Slovakia in their primer for this epic battle versus the Big Red Machine today. Patrick Cane and Ryan Kesler were among a group of eleven players with at least a point as the USA scored six second period goals. USA goaltender Jonathan Quick stopped 22 of 23 shots that Marian Hossa, Zdeno Chára & Co. from Slovakia fired at him.

SBR Prediction: Load up and ride the Big Red Machine with the -129 SportsInteraction Money Line.
