The Russian men's hockey team, which is competing under a neutral flag at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, delivered a crushing 4-0 defeat to Team USA. "We said just relax and play your game". "The gold medal game".
But the fact of the matter is the U.S. faces a long climb to get to that gold medal game.
The former New York Ranger blew off the traditional postgame handshake with Russia's Oleg Znarok, charging Team OAR (Olympic Athletes from Russia) was trying to run up the score when the game was no longer in doubt.

One of the last four will drop into the play-in pool round because only Russian Federation has clinched its division.
"It went through my arm", said Zapolski, who Granato confirmed was his goalie moving forward.
"It's obviously win or go home now, and when you're backs are against the wall, I hope this team is going to show our best", he said.
"Against US, we just worked hard and played as team and it was enough, but here the players were a lot more skilled", he said. "There's lots more games to come".
However, time is running out. "We have a really good team too and this game will help us as we move to the next round". And he'd like to prove it against the Russians.
