Semyon Varlamov helped Russia win.

Russia recorded its second win of the hockey world championships Sunday, beating a determined Norway team 4-2 in Stockholm.

As in Russia’s 5-1 win over Latvia on Saturday, Russia took time to settle, and the Norwegians managed to threaten Colorado Avalanche goaltender Semyon Varlamov’s goal repeatedly despite finishing 46-21 down on shots.

According to the Toronto Sun, Kyle Quincey will be playing for Team Canada.

Quincey, 26, is expected here Sunday morning. He’s played 257 games with the Los Angeles Kings, Colorado Avalanche and his current club, the Detroit Red Wings.

Is Ovechkin better with less ice time?

"Ticking away the moments that make up a slow day. You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way."

For a band that appealed to so many stoners, Pink Floyd’s "Time" was a kick-in-the-butt to get off the couch and do something. The song, off their epic 1974 album Dark Side of the Moon, was about how time is precious and that before you know it you grow old and realize that the best years of your life have slipped away.

For Alex Ovechkin, it might as well be his theme song during these playoffs.

The Washington Capitals captain previously had a laid-back lifestyle playing under former head coach Bruce Boudreau. Ovechkin stayed on the ice for as long as he wanted, sometimes scoring, sometimes floating in the defensive zone, without a care in the world. And then Dale Hunter stepped behind the bench with an iron fist and a stopwatch.
