    BTW, this made a piece of frontline news on NHL.com, didn't expect that!

    Of course, before he scored, no one would have ever thought of Kovalchuk as the player of the game. Zinoviev could be a fair choice at this precise time, notably for his good work in penalty killing in second period. I also suppose he was better than usual in faceoffs (don't have the stats though, to be confirmed).

    Russia

    two fantastic teams, great and exciting hockey and a deserved world champion...

    congrats Russia
    Gott mit dir, du Land der Bayern, deutsche Erde, Vaterland! Über deinen weiten Gauen ruhe seine Segenshand! Er behüte deine Fluren, schirme deiner Städte Bau, und erhalte dir die Farben seines Himmels, weiß und blau!

    Gott mit dir, dem Bayernvolke, dass wir, uns'rer Väter wert, fest in Eintracht und in Frieden bauen uns'res Glückes Herd! Dass mit Deutschlands Bruderstämmen einig uns ein jeder schau und den alten Ruhm bewähre unser Banner, weiß und blau!

    It's the way the Canadian players put pressure on the refs to get penalties which was irritating.

    On French TV, Bozon - which I did expect to be pro-Canadian although I tend to think he might know Bykov well - was clearly pissed off with refereeing during first period, mentioning every Canadian fault which was as obvious as Russian penalty but was uncalled.

    Zinoviev also played in two lines for some time in the 3rd period when something happened with Fedorov's back. I remember: Fedorov is on the bench holding his back; Zinoviev skates to the bench, his line changes while he takes off the helmet, pours a bottle of water on his head and skates back to continue playing.

    What a great final!! And the best team won, and beat Canada on home-ice. What an achievement!

    Congrats Russia!

    That cross-checking was not a scandal, things like this happened from both sides and the refs had decided to swallow their whistle at that time.

    But I think the tripping on Sushinsky on the 2-1 goal was quite cheap, indeed, a major mistake on a game like that.

    During the game, I had the impression that the home ice curse would end for a wrong reason - home officiating - which you usually don't see in WC. I didn't remember a game with blatant home refereeing in recent years, so first period was quite strange.

    What made Russia win yesterday is that they didn't complain so much about refereeing and lose their composure. In other times (semi-final 2005 vs Canada especially), we saw them completely lose their nerves because of calls which came against them, and they aggravated their own situation.
    Yesterday, there wasn't a nervous gesture (Proshkin high stick, may be, but it's more an involuntary gesture, that's why it was 2'+2' and not 5'+20' by the way).
    Reason (for me) : Bykov > Krikunov.

    If any of these nations wins the title next year they will rise to the top regardless of the other teams. The pre-IHWC-ranking next year will be even tighter. The 2005 IHWC will be dropped. Back then Canada got silver, Russia bronze, Sweden was 4th and Finland 7th.

    EDIT: If my calculations are correct, the 2009 pre-IHWC ranking will be like this:
    1. Russia and Canada 2000
    3. Finland 1990
    4. Sweden 1975

    Very close indeed. A world championship will earn the top spot surely for each of the four countries.

    Congrats to Russia! What a great game. I managed to watch most of it despite work
    It looked like for long that Kovalchuk was Russia's weak link but in the end he made the difference.

    That's why he is a great player.
    BTW, i watched the highlights of the game, but with the original commentary in finnish. Absolutely fantastic, even though i coulnd't understand a word, i was absolutely fascinated by the guy's verbal debit, a commentary like that keeps you plugged in to any game. Plus, at the end, he yelled louder then the russian commentators, and seemed genuinely exalted by the russian win.

    New York Times just recently wrote a story on the Finnish commentator, Antero Mertaranta. It includes some of Antsa's best moments over the years: http://slapshot.blogs.nytimes.com/20...an-of-finland/

    Haha, Ovechkin rules: http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/nhl...?urn=nhl,83375
    Right after the final game he digged Canadian Lucky Loonie out of the ice with his skate. He's going to split it to two pieces and with his friend defender Ilya Nikulin wear them around the neck until Vancuver-2010.
