The Russian national team was defeated by the Finnish team in the final stage of the Euro Hockey Tour - the Czech Games. Valery Bragin's wards lost 1: 4, and Maxim Shalunov became the author of the only goal of the national team. Russian hockey players suffered their first defeat in the tournament and were unable to extend the record unbeaten run, which consisted of ten meetings. Thus, before the game with the Finns, Valery Bragin at least needed to solve the problem with the first link of defense, which was formed due to the absence of Khafizullin. As a result, the place next to Yegor Yakovlev was taken by pin up bet indir Dmitry Yudin from Ak Bars, who last defended the colors of the national team in the Eurochallenge match with Switzerland (1: 3). However, the changes did not end there. Vasily Podkolzin was transferred to the third three to Denis Zernov and Emil Galimov, and Dmitry Voronkov and Ivan Morozov were in the second company to Anton Burdasov. In addition, goalkeeper Ivan Bocharov got a chance to prove himself, and Alexander Samonov did not even get into the reserve.
