My favorite quote....

"Led by young stars Alexander Ovechkin, Evgeni Malkin and Ilya Kovalchuk, Russia's win over Sweden defied the notion that it is the same emotionally fragile team that has had a tendency to become disconnected when the going got tough at these kinds of tournaments.

"I think Malkin had a tremendous game today, he was probably one of the best players on our team," said defenseman Darius Kasparaitis, referring to the 19-year-old who, less than two months ago, was playing at the World Junior Championships."
