The Russian flag appeared in the stands of the championship in the United States. Great moment from the NHL final

The tricolor welcomed Bobrovsky, the main architect of Florida’s victory.

The NHL remains one of the few sports organizations that, in the current political climate, is quite loyal to Russian players. And this is understandable: without Ovechkin and Malkin, Kucherov and Panarin, Kaprizov and Shesterkin, many clubs in the league would be completely different from what they are now, and the NHL itself would lose a lot.

It helps the concept that the NHL views all hockey players solely through the prism of club affiliation, without placing the slightest emphasis on nationality. Actually, this does not only concern the Russians. When it comes to international relations, the league as a whole is keeping up with the times. Thus, in the Four Nations Tournament, organized by the NHL and scheduled for February 2025, there will be no Russian team for political reasons. And for the third year in a row the Stanley Cup is closed for our country, although Russian players continue to regularly win the trophy in different teams. And now, unfortunately, Sergei Bobrovsky will not be able to bring the cup to Novokuznetsk, Vladimir Tarasenko to Novosibirsk, and Dmitry Kulikov to Lipetsk.

But in everything else, the Russians have no problems in the NHL. There is no hostility, no sidelong glances, no provocations. Therefore, our boys can behave naturally, without fear of some kind of inappropriate reaction. I immediately remember how Alexander Ovechkin spoke in Russian to the entire stadium after the game in which he outscored Gordie Howe.

In the seventh game of this season’s final, Florida’s Russian players became outstanding figures. Sergei Bobrovsky once again showed an excellent game, nullifying almost all the efforts of the Edmonton attack. After three defeats in a row, in which Bobrovsky missed many goals, Sergei was ideally prepared for the decisive battle.

Dmitry Kulikov also became the hidden hero of the party. The modest local defender managed to turn a dangerous moment in the Florida goal into a golden goal for the Panthers.

The Russian created the key salvation of the NHL season. The Florida championship began with Kulikov.

And after the match it became clear that natural and normal behavior on the part of and towards Russian athletes is possible not only on the ice, but also off it. Fortunately, the NHL did not think to ban any national symbols during league games, and today the Russian flag flew in the stands of the championship in Sunrise. The broadcast included a moment when, during Bobrovsky’s lap of honor, one of the fans greeted the goalkeeper with a tricolor flag.

And this is as normal as the presence, for example, of the Finnish flag.

This is a good and important point. It attests that not everything in the modern world is still imbued with an exclusively political agenda. That Russophobia is an exclusively opportunistic philosophy in the heads of individual government officials of different countries, but in no way an expression of public opinion.
