I hope this TF medal for the Russian boys put less pressure on the girls and compete more relaxed tomorrow. I hope they finally understand that medals are not everything in life, and discover what really matters at the Olympics and the real important thing of this competition: getting more Instagram followers.


So Daria Skrypnik, Lilia Akhaimova, Artur Dalaloyan, Dmitry Lankin, and Sergei Eltsov are in Tbilisi for the VTB Cup? It sounds like a dual meet between Russia and Georgia.

An interview with Artemi Panarin after the game in Dallas
  • Reporter:Do you and Kane hang out off the ice?
  • Artemi Panarin:Yes, we have a great relationship. I think there is a connection between us. He understands my jokes, I understand his and we laugh our asses off.
  • Reporter:What are your favorite words you've learned from Patrick?
  • Artemi Panarin:Well, he did learned from me. Now before every game Patrick says to me "Davay! Davay!" (which means "Let's go! Let's go!"), and I only learned a couple of bad words from him.
  • Reporter:Does Kane often stand up for you on the ice?
  • Artemi Panarin:It doesn't really happen a lot (he is talking about scrums), but in general everyone in the team is really supportive and always ready to protect each other.
  • Reporter:Where are you going to spend your Christmas holidays? With Tikhonov or Anisimov?
  • Artemi Panarin:No, I'm going to Miami with friends.
