impressed that the russian national anthem is actually being sung

sloppy play to start the game

1-0

Q

Goal by Audette, assist to Dauphin

Love the power in Mantha's game.

dirty hit by the russian captain

Q powerplay mostly on the outside and ineffective

followed by dirty hit by Dauphin resulting in a five minute PP for russia because of injury

Russia capitalizes with a one-timer from the point.

1-1

I agree about Mantha, he has looked impressive for the most part.

Not sure if he will be one of the prospects that fails to use his size at the next level, I did see some pretty soft check attempts and he is bigger than the majority of his opponents.

This might be a stupid question, but where are the Oilers Russian players? Yakimov & Slepyshev especially.

Hopefully with Dauphin out of the game, Roy can get some more ice time.

And as I write this he got a shift on the Gautier line.

5 on 3 for the Q

Mantha pots one in

More impressed with Mantha than Drouin at this point

And Russia ties it up!

2-2 through 1 period

Lots of special teams so far.

Roy with the credit for the 3-2 goal, looks like that'll be changed though.

anyone know if Ryan McKay, an NCAA guy is still a FA and if so,....is he decent?

He is supposedly putting up great numbers for a goalie.

Other college goalies you can read about on HF....Alex Lyon (undrafted) ...Charlie Lindgren (undrafted)...Thatcher Demko (18, draft eligible)..

There is an argument out there that college goalies have a slightly better development path....though I suppose fewer are high end goaltenders.

I'd be willing to take a gamble on a Timmy Thomas.

anyone else watching Nurse in the Subway Super Series game tonight.

Nurse just got caught on a rush where the forward bobbled the puck, the Russions turned it the other way on a 3 on 1 and scored. 1-0 Russia

Goldobin made a nice pace on that rush BTW, which basically made it a 2 on 0.

Nurse with a delay of game penalty now. Not making a very good case for WJC

Just showed Lowe and Stu in the stands.

2-0 Russia now. Barbashev with a nice cross crease pass to an open man for the tap in.

I very seriously doubt that a couple bad plays in a subway series game is going to make or break him making team canada.


On a side note, 18 save first period for Brossoit to start tonights OKC game. 0-0 after 1.

I missed the first period, but in the second Nurse has played well in his limited ice time, he's made son good plays in his own zone, he put a few shots on net. He has some sick tools. Skating especially it's effortless at times.

Nurse's skating is so awesome to watch. Wish he'd get more time on the pp in this game.

Lander and Ewanyk with 2g's each tonight also.

Angry shift from Nurse, and by angry I mean that everyone he touched hit the ice. I counted four of them.

I think saying that Ekblad - Pelech are being double shifted would be an understatement.

Ekblad looks like a gangly Phaneuf out there in the small sample I've seen. High shoulder skating, and it's as if he doesn't realize how long his arms are..
