Gee, who do you think Versus and the NHL wanted to see win tonight?
Johan Holmqvist allowed 4 goals on 24 shots for the overtime loss.
Ridiculous officiating. Ridiculous broadcasting by Versus. Ridiculous all around.
Denis Kazionov was scoreless in Omsk's 5-2 loss to Ufa.
Albert Vishnyakov did not play in Spartak's 3-2 shootout loss to Togliatti.
Dimitri Kazionov was scoreless in Kazan's 5-3 win over Yaroslavl. The game was the second of the season for Buffalo Sabres goaltender Mika Noronen's for Ak Bars. Noronen has fought injuries throughout the first half of this season.

Anton But had an assist in St. Petersburg's 4-3 shootout win over Tver.
There has been a trade...
The Lightning have dealt overage prospect Bryce Lampman to the Dallas Stars in exchange for prospect defenseman Mario Scalzo Jr. Scalzo, 23, has 1 goal and 9 points in 15 games so far this season for Iowa of the AHL. The 5'10" 190 lbs defenseman is most well known for his brief stint in 2004-2005 with Rimouski of the QMJHL where, after being acquired at the trade deadline in his overage season, he scored 13 goals and 44 points in 23 regular season games helping the Oceanic and Sidney Crosby reach the Memorial Cup final. Scalzo Jr's best professional season came as a rookie in 2005-2006 when he posted 4 goals and 33 points in 74 games.
The trade of Lampman resolves the Admirals' issue of having one more veteran than they were allowed to dress under AHL rules.
The American Hockey League announced today that Norfolk Admirals left wing Mathieu Darche has been named the Rbk/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending November 18, 2007. In his first four AHL games of the season, Darche erupted for 10 points on three goals and seven assists.
