This is Russia’s fifth globe title since the failure of the Soviet Union.

Complying with a frustrating failure at the Sochi Olympics – when the Russian team was bounced from the Gamings following a loss to Finland in the quarterfinals– the team made a victorious resurgence at the World Champion.

The Russians reached the last unbeaten, taking 2013 Champs, the Swedes 3-1.

Olympic Champs Canada were done away with in quarter-final play after a defeat to Finland.

Russia’s nationwide ice hockey team has beat team Finland 5-2 in the struggle for the gold medal at the 2014 Globe Hockey Championship in Minsk, Belarus.
