Makarov played 60:00 TOI with 35 SVS on 35 SOG in Russia's 1-0 shootout loss to Team WHL. He stopped Holmberg's opening attempt, but then allowed goals to Shinkaruk (shot high glove; his "book" said to shoot there), McNeill (shot low stick) and S.Reinhart (deke), while Yakupov and Co. failed to put an attempt past Brossoit.

No score in period one of Game 5 of the Super Series. Russian goalie Andrey Makarov was very busy and was a wall in net.

Impressed with Makarov's ability to battle down low. Loose pucks covered up, digs in, fights through traffic. Seals ice nicely in tight.

Makarov holds his gloves low, especially when crouching. Watch for it in the shootout. Excellent showings for he and Brossoit. What a treat!

No. 2 Star - Andrey Makarov, Team Russia (Saskatoon Blades)

Another WHL goaltender who has had a less than stellar start with the Saskatoon Blades, Makarov responded in kind to Brossoit's performance, although it wasn't pretty. The WHL's book on him, keep shots low and to his left pad, evidently, resulted in shots being fired wide as Makarov challenged foes with a particularly aggressive style. He also earned the regulation shutout, stopping 35-of-35.

Makarov's highlights came later in the game, in the third period. His Blade teammate Duncan Siemens set up Raiders forward Mark McNeill with an excellent lead pass but Makarov caught the shot in his chicken wing. On another chance, Mitch Holmberg fed the puck to Brady Brassart right in the slot but the puck stayed still in Makarov's five-hole.
