Alexander Radulov opened the scoring, added an empty-netter and one assist in Russia’s 4-0 qualification win against the Norwegians at Bolshoy Ice Dome in Sochi Tuesday.

Prior to the win, head coach Zinetula Bilyaletdinov was disappointed with Radulov’s first two tournament games and hinted that he would be a healthy scratch for their third and final preliminary game.

Instead, Radulov was inserted into the line-up and scored the game-winning shootout goal against the Slovakians after insisting that he be one of the shooters. He continued to be a factor in carving Russia’s pressure-packed path to a gold medal.
