And that's exactly what happened on Sunday - Saturday night in South Korea - when the Olympic Athletes from Russia (OAR), a team playing for recognition that won't ever officially be credited to Russia thanks to highly publicized doping sanctions, took home hockey's top global prize, edging Germany, 4-3, in overtime to close the 2018 men's ice hockey tournament. He scored his second with 55.5 seconds left in regulation to force overtime.
Winter Olympics legend Marit Bjoergen lifted Norway top of the final Pyeongchang medals table on Sunday, as Russian Federation celebrated a dramatic men's hockey gold - but also saw their flag barred from the closing ceremony over doping.

Russian Federation now looks to defend their goldmedal in four years at the next Winter Olympics. Kirill Kaprizov scored the victor on the power play.
Later, at the medal ceremony, the winning team sang the Russian anthem while the music for the Olympic anthem was played in the arena, despite being barred by Olympic authorities from having their flag raised or anthem played. The Russian players were heard singing the Russian national anthem on the ice - apparently contravening rules governing their participation as neutrals, following a major doping scandal. They made a good run for gold before finishing with runner-up silver.
Defenseman Bogdan Kiselevich said players sang the Russian anthem as an expression of "freedom of speech". That was my dream for when I was five years old, when I started playing. Gusev scored first from beside the net at 53:21, but there was no time to celebrate as Germany's Dominik Kahun, left wide open in front of the goal, answered just seconds later.
However, the International Olympic Committee had already voted to maintain Russia's ban pending the results of final dope tests from Pyeongchang, meaning the Russians can not wave their national flag at Sunday's closing ceremony. "Now I have no dream". Yes, NHL hockey is a business and there is nothing forcing the NHL to participate in Olympic hockey, nothing but national pride, and you can't put a price on that.
The skill primarily from the Kontinental Hockey League was on full display - and the Russians needed it against disciplined, opportunistic Germany, which had all of its players from leagues in its homeland.
