MOSCOW, May 16. /TASS/. The Russian national hockey team was victorious again on the home ice of the 2016 IIHF World Championship defeating the Norwegian squad 3-0 on Monday afternoon in Moscow.
Following the scoreless first period, the Russians opened the score in the opening minutes of the second period, when Ivan Telegin corrected a puck into the net of the Norwegian goal after his teammate’s Dmitry Orlov’s powerful shot from the blue line.
With little over two minutes remaining in the period Russia’s Artemy Panarin took some time dribbling the puck in the Norwegian goal zone before backhanding it in the net increasing his team’s dominance to 2-0 before the third period.
Going into the third minute of the closing period Russia’s Roman Lyubimov was quick to react to the ricocheted puck flying in mid-air to bat it into the net and increased the score to 3-0.
Hosts Russia are playing their last group stage match against long-time rivals Sweden on Tuesday night, while the Norwegian squad are closing their group stage voyage with a match against Latvia tomorrow afternoon.
