As the host country, Russia had high hopes at medaling in men's hockey which is considered one of the more popular events at the Winter Olympics. Unlike the last winter games there will be no medal for the host nation. Russia was eliminated in the quarterfinals after a 3-1 loss to Finland.
The head coach of the Russian hockey Zinetuta Bilyaletdinov was extremely disappointed at the post-game press conference knowing the fans are going to "eat me alive right now."
