Hockey superstar Alexander Ovechkin is eager to win a first Olympic medal in Sochi and silence the critics who savaged the Russian team after Vancouver. Russia crashed out of the 2010 Olympics at the quarter-final stage, hammered 7-3 by a Canadian side starring Sidney Crosby.
"It is impossible to forget about the quarter-final against the Canadians when we were defeated 3-7," said Ovechkin.
"We need to forget the horror of Vancouver in order to move forward. And now I am only thinking about Sochi," Ovechkin said.
