The start by the Russian men’s ice hockey team in Sochi was somewhat disappointing to some fans. A canceled goal in the tense match against the US led to eventual defeat, while Sunday’s game against Slovakia, one of the underdogs in the 2014 Olympics, was won only in a shootout. But Russian hockey legend Pavel Bure told RT that his fellow players know how to handle pressure and still have time to find a second wind. “This year you can lose three games in a row and still have a chance to win gold,” he said.
