I'm sure it was an intense game, and I'm just happy they could show a good level of game-play and good determination.

“It was such an important game and we just didn’t want to lose. That’s why we’re so happy to come out with a win, though we’re all very shocked by the news of the plane crash that claimed the lives of our fellow countrymen. We’d like to dedicate this win to them,” Mikhail Likhachev, Russia coach.
