Alex Ovechkin had a goal and an assist in a breathtaking start and the Russians went on to beat Slovenia 5-2 Thursday in their Sochi Olympics opener.
"Tough to explain the loss, of course, why scored so little," Bilyaletdinov told reporters. "Players who score so many goals for their clubs, like Alex Ovechkin who scored 40 goals for his club … Right now I cannot explain that."
"The coach is to be blamed for the result, only the coach," he said. "He had a set of bright hockey stars but failed to make a team. There was no team during all their games here."
