Captain of the Russian team and Kazan’s HC Ak Bars Alexei Morozov answered journalists’ questions after a training session at Britannia Centre.

According to Morozov’s words, the quarter final stage versus Canada at the Olympics-2010 shouldn’t be considered a preschedule final. “It is totally not true. But every match is like a new final for our team. Tomorrow will be a new day, a new match and a new rival. We don’t think about who it will be. The main thing is not to be afraid of the opponents, but we can respect them,” Sport-Express quotes the captain as saying.

Answering the question about Canadians’ weak points, Morozov said: “Any team, including Canada, have weak points.”
