2009 U18 World Junior Championships

After the disappointing defeat in day's one match against Finland, Russia stunned Slovakia with a 7-2 score especially thanks a very strong second period in which they scored four goals. "We closed the first period 1-0, then in the second period we scored three times. This was the key of the match", stated Alexander Karpushkin after the match. Vladimir Tarasenko scored four points, with two goals and two assists, Dmitri Orlov three points (1+2), Sergei Chvanov and Kirill Kabanov one goal and one assist, while Maxim Kitsyn replied to Plyuschev's critics after the match against Finland with a great performance, scoring two goals. "We were more disciplined this time, we didn't suffer from stupid penalties" - added Karpushkin. Igor Bobkov's performance also was very strong, as Russia outshoot the opponents just by one attempt, 40-39. His 37 saves performance has been instrumental for Russia to get the three points. After this good victory, team Russia will face Norway on Sunday. If Plyuschev's team will earn the win, they will be automatically qualified for the quarterfinals.
