Russia vs. Slovakia Gamethread: Bryzgalov is the Man

Coyotes goalie Ilya Bryzgalov will see his first action of these Olympics tonight against Slovakia. Russia ran over Latvia on Tuesday 8-2 with Evgeni Nabokov in net. Everyone on the Russian team practically got in on the goal scoring. Alexander Radulov (1), Danis Zaripov (2), Alexander Ovechkin (2), Ilya Kovalchuk (1), Evgeni Malkin (1) and Alexei Morozov (1). I'd expect much of the same tonight with the talanted offense that Russia brings to the table.

Slovakia went down 3-1 to the Czech team. It didn't help much that two of the team's top players in Zdeno Chara and Marian Gaborik were taking penalties all over the place. Tomas Vokun played well for the Czech side as well. I'm not sure which Slovakian goalie is in tonight, but since Halak got the start last time, i'll guess that Peter Budaj gets in tonight.
