6 Comments

It appears Semyon Varlamov will be between the pipes for Russia against Finland in the quarter-final of the men’s Olympic hockey competition in Sochi.

Varlamov’s last game came in the preliminary round – a 1-0 shutout victory in the shootout against Slovakia.

To this point in the tournament, Russia has alternated between Varlamov and Sergei Bobrovsky, who also recorded the shutout victory against underdog Norway in the qualification round.
