Russians Fall Via The Penalty Shot
By IIHF.com

BRATISLAVA – Tomas Plekanec scored the game winner off a third period penalty shot as the Czechs beat Russia 3-2, in a game that featured a lot of emotions. Including frustration and irritation.

Jaromir Jagr and Jakub Voracek also scored for the Czechs, Ondrej Pavelec made 24 saves.

"It was a tough game, to the last second," said Czech forward Martin Havlat.

"It was a strange game today. I don’t even really know how I feel right now," said Jaromir Jagr.

"We won the game but we lost [Milan Michalek and Karel Rachunek], two very good players. It’s kind of mixed feelings about whatever happened in the second half of the game. It wasn’t a pretty game. There were a lot of penalties and power plays," he added.

Not only had Russia and the Czech Republic split the wins in the previous 13 World Championship games – six each, one tie – they had also alternated between wins and losses almost perfectly. Only before last year’s World Championship final, which the Czech Republic won 2-1 – had Russia managed to beat the Czechs twice in a row at the Worlds.

Defenseman Dmitry Kulikov finished with a shot on goal on 12:01 of ice time (20 shifts).
