Big thanks to @atsomnambulist for the help with the translation! 😇

-You live in the United States ten months in a year. What do you miss most about Russia?

- It used to be difficult, my parents did not visit that much. And now I’m comfortable, all who are close and dear to me often visit Pittsburgh. I don’t worry about food, I’m not fussy. What I miss the most is the Russian banya (sauna). Whenever I arrive in Moscow, I immediately go to “Sanduny”. I like to hang out with friends, sometimes in nightclubs too. You get tired of a year of matches and flights across the America, so you need some time to relax.

Auston Matthews scored 40 regular season goals and 4 in the play offs

Alex Ovechkin scored 33 goals in the regular season and 3 in the play offs 

i don’t know what the most amazing part is. Auston scoring more goals than Ovi or the fact that it’s 40 and 4, and 33 and 3. 

the point is Auston is a fucking beast.

Year in Review: Hockey Tumblr (january)

1.1

  • Bruins lose terribly to the Habs at Gillette stadium. Mike Condon had to be in net because Price was injured. the score was 5-1. not like this day has haunted me all year or anything. Claude Julien cuts off the arms on his hoodie to imitate Bill Belichick which i thought was HILARIOUS

1.6:

  • LEO KOMAROV IS NAMED TO THE ALL STAR GAME and yeah it was the leagues choice that’s how bad the leafs were at that time
  • Sidney crosby, out of excuses, plays like shit to avoid the all star game nominee entirely. finally gets to rest.
  • Johansen is traded to the Preds for Jones and they wanted to switch apartments but Johansen had a roommate. Jones still let Johansen use his. They crossed paths in the airport and it was cute.

1.8 

  • Bruins become 2nd team to win 3000 games

1.10: 

  • Ovechkin gets 500 goals!!! Tom Wilson is left out of the bench clearing celly :((

1.12: 

  • Galchenyuk’s girlfriend is arrested for domestic violence and the habs handle it horribly by making him apologize for being a distraction. 
  •  Noah Hanifin sassily/bitterly responds to his NHL rating with “What did Mcdavid get for skating?” 

1.15: 

  • John Scott is traded to the habs because the yotes don’t want to send him to the All Star Game that bad. People are still hopeful he will be able to go but then montreal sends him to the NHL making him ineligible.

1.18:

1.19:

  • NHL caves and announces John Scott will captain the Pacific Division All Star Team
  • Habs finish their collapse when they officially drop out of the playoffs after a record breaking start (the good kind).

1.20:

  • CWHL has their all star game and it’s broadcast on Sportsnet. over 6000 people were in attendance and 100,000 viewers on TV

1.29

  • Connecticut Whale coach resigns. Rumors of him being completely underqualified for the position start to pop up, CT Whale players definitey don’t seem happy with him. They still were undefeated by this point.
  • Mark Giordano is upset that the KHL uses Gaudreau’s light a hockey stick on fire gimmick in the shootout at their all star game. Suggests they light Gaudreau’s body on fire to get back at them.

1.30

  • NHL all star skills competition. PK dresses like Jagr. Burns dresses like a wookie. Larkin beats the speed skating record.

1.31

  • NHL All star game! Atlantic beats the Metro, Pacific beats the central and then John Scott becomes the MVP.
