The regular season wasn't much of a struggle for the Boston Bruins, and neither was their first-round playoff series against the Detroit Red Wings.
The Boston Bruins took a couple punches, then hit back hard and put the Detroit Red Wings on the brink of elimination.
The Boston Bruins' rink is 200 feet long by 85 feet wide, just like all the others in the NHL.
At one end of the ice, Jimmy Howard made his best save of the game. At the other, Pavel Datsyuk scored the only goal.
The Boston Bruins worked all season to get home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs.
The NHL-leading Boston Bruins followed their game plan of keeping Gustav Nyquist in front of them for more than two periods.
The Detroit Red Wings have stayed in the hunt in the Eastern Conference playoff race despite injuries to key players.
Alex Ovechkin, Pavel Datsyuk and their teammates had nursed dreams about this week for several years. They were all dashed in 60 frustrating minutes.
Right from the start of the tournament, the only way to envision the Russians winning a gold medal in hockey was to close both eyes and keep them shut.
The Russians dutifully shook the Finns' hands and then skated to the center of a rink built to showcase their return to Olympic hockey dominance. When they raised their sticks in a mournful salute, they got more whistles than cheers from their devastated fans.
Pavel Datsyuk wants to play, not talk.
T.J. Oshie scored four times in the shootout and got the winner in the eighth round, leading the United States past Russia 3-2 Saturday in the thrilling revival of a classic Olympic hockey rivalry.
As elite teams go, they aren't particularly big, they don't wear red much anymore, and as far as being a machine, well, the Russian hockey team is proving just as susceptible to nerves as anyone here at the Olympics.
The game will go down as one for the ages, but Alex Ovechkin and John Carlson played relatively minor roles in the result.
The Russia captain and Detroit Red Wings star on Tuesday said he is healthy for the Olympics after joining the home team for its second full practice.
"I'm kind of jealous. I want to break history," Datsyuk said.
"It's a good start," Datsyuk said, "but we know there are many tough games (ahead)."
