ARKHANGELSK, February 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Four goals Finland’s opponents, Austria, scored in a group round match are no reason to get upset, Finland’s goal tender Tuukka Rask told Itar-Tass in an interview.
On Thursday, Finland beat Austria by eight goals to four.
President of Russia’s ice hockey federation Vladislav Tretyak, a legendary goalie of the 1970s and 1980s in his lifetime, said before the tournament began he liked Rask’s performance a lot.
“Possibly, he saw me play in the Czech republic, where I spent last season during the lockout. I find it very flattering to hear such a respectable gentleman say such things about me. Please say ‘Thank You’ to him on my behalf. Too bad I failed so many times in the encounter with Austria,” Rask said.
“Even when we conceded the lead, we had no doubts we were stronger and were obliged to win. Four unattended goals — that’s too much in any encounter. Keeping the goal intact is the ideal to be sought. I am quite pleased with my debut, but I could have done far better. I liked playing together with Selanne and Granlund and lot.”
