Russia ice hockey coach Zinetula Bilyaletdinov is leaving his job after the home team's disappointing quarterfinals exit at the Sochi Olympics.
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.
Alex Ovechkin took some heat from the Russian coach for scoring one goal in the Olympics. Adam Oates says Russia lost as a team.
Ilya Kovalchuk was not on the ice for Russia's final practice before the qualification round, and his coach insisted the superstar forward is not injured.
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 Russians are resting Pavel Datsyuk, hoping he'll be healthy enough to play in their Sochi Games opener.
"I don't think it's a serious problem, dangerous," Russian coach Zinetula Bilyaletdinov said through an interpreter. "I think he's going to be OK."
Asked if the team's captain would play in its first game against Slovenia on Thursday, Bilyaletdinov replied in English, "I hope."
