Russia got its first real test in the Slovakian team and struggled to put the puck past goaltender Jaroslav Halak. Bryzgalov, who allowed five goals against Slovakia at the 2006 Olympics, was nearly perfect for Russia in this rematch. Despite coach Bykov shaping a powerplay unit of Ovechkin-Malkin-Semin-Kovalchuk-Gonchar, Russia still had powerplay difficulties.
