Team Russia Vs Team Finland is a matchup of two goalies one is the defending Vezina trophy winner and the other will more than likely be a Vezina finalist after this season. Bobrovsky vs Tuukka Rask will be a special matchup even if the Russians will have a home ice advantage in the quarterfinals.
Of course the guy that must be feeling the pressure of the entire country is Alex Ovechkin but maybe not getting a bye game may help them in their quest to win a medal and they also were able to avoid Canada or the USA until a potential gold medal matchup.
Finland has had it’s issues scoring goals and are led by the ageless Teemu Selanne, but you would think the Finns will need to bring their A game on offense to get to the Semi-finals.

Who do you have winning this matchup and advancing to the semifinals? Will Ovechkin continue to carry Team Russia or will he feel too much pressure?
