2002 Winter Olympic Games

Host City: Salt Lake City, United States
February 15-24, 2002
RESULT: BRONZE MEDAL

Russia’s 2002 Olympic squad, one of the most star-studded Russian rosters ever, was coached by Vyacheslav Fetisov. With Nikolai Khabibulin in net, this team was expected to do better than in 1998, being one of the favourites to win gold. In the quarterfinal Russia pulled off a revenge victory against the Czechs, yet could not outmatch the Americans in the heart-stopping semifinal. After being dominated for two periods, Russia stormed out with two goals early in the third period, but a miracle saved the US from a tied game. Sergei Samsonov rang a shot right into the net, in which goalie Mike Richter’s glove was located. The puck then deflected off a post and out. The goal was not counted. It was a great game, with an unfortunate ending. Russia beat the surprising Belarusian team for the bronze medal, which was well deserved, but not enough to call the Olympics a true success for Russia.

    After I initially left a comment I appear to have
    clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever
    a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the exact same comment.

    There has to be an easy method you are able
    to remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!
