From the AP:
Evgeni Malkin scored twice and Russia bounced back from a shootout loss to Slovakia, beating the Czech Republic 4-2 Sunday to reach the Olympic hockey quarterfinals.
In a rematch of the 1998 Olympic gold-medal game, won 1-0 by the Czechs, Russia scored in every period to claim the top spot in Group B with seven points.
Malkin gave Russia (2-0-1-0) a 1-0 lead in the first and pushed it to 3-1 in the third after a huge hit by teammate Alex Ovechkin freed the puck at center ice.
Viktor Kozlov also scored for Russia, and Pavel Datsyuk added an empty-netter off assists from Ovechkin and Malkin.
