In other Caps news, former first round pick Semen Varlamov didn't play too well for team Russia, claiming at one point "I shouldn't have let in so many. Three out of four goals are on me. And the first one turned everything upside down! How did I not stop that one? The shot came from a sharp angle, and the puck squeezed between my pads." The fact that Varlamov let in so many goals through his 5-hole reminds me of a past Capitals' goaltender.
Game 2 in the 8 game series will be Wednesday (tomorrow) at 9 am eastern from the brand new stadium in Ufa, Russia.
