Evgeni Malkin hasn't completely put Russia's failure at the 2014 Olympics behind him.
Russia was expected to compete for a gold medal, but instead they lost in the quarterfinals to Finland. "I remember (at the 2010 Vancouver Games) we lost, and now it's more worse (because) we played at home," Malkin said. "Of course it's tough. (I) need a little bit more time." His linemate, James Neal, is predicting that Malkin will be fine in a couple days.
