Habs in Sochi Update #4

The fourth day of men’s hockey in the 2014 Sochi, Russia Winter Olympics has come to a close. Today, four Montreal Canadiens players participated in two games. In one game, we saw Tomas Plekanec on the ice for 22:04 and recorded four shots on goal in the Czech’s 1-0 loss to Switzerland. Three Habs players played in a thrilling Russia vs. USA game that finished in the late rounds of a shootout. Markov assisted both goals for Russia and Emelin got one shot on target. On the other bench, Max Pacioretty was only given 8:31 time on ice to work with but still put a shot on net.

Andrei Markov who used his 20:07 of time on ice to his advantage and assisted teammate Datsyuk on both Russian goals. Markov is now tied for the lead among all Habs in points with 2 after four days of play. Tomorrow at the Bolshoy Ice Dome, Markov and Team Russia will play their last preliminary round game against the winless Slovakians.

The major arena holding the majority of games is the newly opened (2012) Bolshoy Ice Dome in Sochi, Russia. The $180.1 million structure holds a capacity of 12,000 people. 300 metres down the road is an even new barn (2013), Shayba Arena in Sochi, Russia. The $27.2 million arena will host ice hockey games as well as ice sledge hockey games in the Paralympics. ————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
