  • Description

    Bracketed with Canada as favourites for the World Ice Hockey Championship, Soviet Russia slipped into form in this Sunday afternoon clash with Finland to emerge winners by a clear 10-0 margin.

    Although only two of the Finnish team - Viitala and Hakala - have played in international matches before, the Scandinavian team had given a solid display against Czechoslovakia on the Saturday before going down to a narrow 5-1 defeat.

    But hopes that the Finns would give the Russians a close game slowly disappeared as the more experienced USSR team drew steadily ahead after scoring four goals in the first four minutes of the match.

    The Russians, all fine stick-handlers, back-checked cleverly but tended to waste goal-scoring chances with too much passing in front of the Finnish net.

    But, despite this flaw in their attack, the Russians looked quick and confident and confirmed pre-tournament reports that they will be a tough squad to beat.

    The Russian goals were scored by Cherapanev (2), Guryshev (2), Pantiokhov, Kopylov, Tregubov, Alexandrov, Ukolov and Loktev.

    Our film shows first period goals by Loktev (7) and Alexandrov (9) together with a third period goal by Kopylev (14)
