From what I can tell from this Blues won and Landon scored, but was it a pre-season game or just a scrimmage between the team itself?
Blues vei myös ottelun päätteeksi pidetyn rangaistuslaukauskilpailun maalein 3-1, Bluesin maaleista vastasivat Landon Wilson, Teemu Elomo ja Donald MacLean.
Whole article translated:
Defenseman Arto Laatikainen's goal was the only one in the yesterday's (Thursday) match against Riga 2000 team. Laatikainen scored on the powerplay at 4.37 of third period, assisted by Teemu Elomo.
Blues's opponent Riga 2000 is professional team, which targets to take part to Russian league in upcoming season. The team is reigning Latvian Champion.
Blues goalies were Sami Heinonen and Mika Oksa, who played the game in half, with Heinonen starting. Laatikainen was chosen as the best player of the match
Blues won also the shootout held after the game. Landon Wilson, Teemu Elomo and Donald MacLean scored for Blues.
"Whole week has been good. We have trained two times in a day and yesterday we played exhibition match", said Kimmo Kiuru from Riga.
The main targets during the camp was training the system and getting the new players in to the team and the system. "There's good feeling in the team and one of the targets of the week was that we get to know each other better."
Blues's Riga camp ends today. Next (this, as article is little older than translation) week they travel to Kempele, near Oulu, where they play their first exhibiton match in Finland against Kärpät, the reigning Finnish champion.
