Miroslav Satan has tasted success everywhere from the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship to the Stanley Cup final. Based on his opening game against France, the 38-year-old Slovak legend is hungry for more.
Satan scored his team’s fifth goal in a 6-2 romp over Les Bleus, launching a vintage blast from the right faceoff circle that flew past Cristobal Huet’s blocker.
“All in all, we got the result,” said Satan afterwards. “There are some things that we need to improve for tomorrow, because obviously we’re going to play a much better team (in Finland).”
