Team Russia beat Team Switzerland 5-1 on Saturday. The game features Capitals Evgeny Kuznetsov, Alex Ovechmin and Dmitry Orlov, who arrive in Russia just yesterday.

Evgeny Kuznetsov found the net on an amazing tip-in of his own shot. Alex Ovechkin got the assist.

Dmitry Orlov would turn in the games best check. Niederreiter tried to cut across Orlov. It didn’t work out as intended. And then Niederreiter chucked Orlov’s helmet.
