The winner of group B – Russia – will meet at the world Cup of hockey with team USA in the framework of the quarterfinal matches. Who will get the victory in the first round of the playoffs? According to quotes , the official bookmakers, the chances of Victoria in "the red car" is much higher. But whether or not to relax the wards Vorobyov? All in good time.
"Red car" not only brought the world Cup in Slovakia a powerful composition (probably the best in recent years), but best of all made a preliminary stage. Russia won all seven games, scored thirty-six goals and conceding only seven, which was the best difference in the tournament. And so many more points have failed to gain any one team.
One can only hope, that perfect start will not relax the Russians. And from their side will not be underestimating opponents. Because in the playoffs the slightest mistake can cost you your place in the fight for medals.
But the Americans debuted very poorly, which almost paid spot in the playoffs. Only four wins in regulation time over the middle peasants and outsiders. Only one victory over "the big six" (the Finns), and then in overtime. As a result, only fourteen points and fourth place. What will happen next? The failure or the wonderful semi-finals?
In recent years, the Americans can not beat the Russians in major tournaments. Our forecast – a victory of the "red machine". Because it really looks much stronger than his opponent. At least right now.
