    HockeyAllsvenskan (Sweden)
    Vasteras 5 vs. Leksands 6 (OT)

    Brendan Mikkelson, Vasteras, 2-0-2, E, 6 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 6 GP, 2-1-3, E, 4 PIM

    Patrik Berglund, who had another monster night (2 G, 2A), scored just 42 seconds in and Vasteras jumped out to a 3-0 lead halfway through the first period but Leksands battled back and even took the lead heading into the final frame before eventually winning in the shootout. What was a showdown between two of the league's top clubs was certainly entertaining from an offensive standpoint as both teams racked up a combined ten goals and 93 shots on goal in regulation. Locked-out Lightning D Brendan Mikkelson scored his first goals of the season, his first staking Vasteras to an early 2-0 lead while his second, a power play tally that tied the game with just under eight minutes left in regulation, he scored by drifting into the high slot and quickly snapping home a loose rebound. Vasteras (13-7-2-1, 44 PTS) is next in action on Sunday against Asploven (7-13-1-1, 24 PTS), which currently shares the third-worst record in the league.

    Elitserien (Sweden)
    Brynas 1 @ AIK 2 (OT)

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-1-1, +1, 2 SOG, 2 PIM (slashing)
    Season totals: 24 GP, 8-5-13, +4, 31 PIM

    Brynas ran up an impressive 39-19 shot advantage but was repeatedly stymied by AIK netminder Daniel Larsson and ultimately came up short on the road Tuesday in what was its second-consecutive overtime loss. This time, though, Brynas met its demise in the shootout thanks to the hands and creativity of Niklas Jensen, selected 29th overall in the 2011 by the Vancouver Canucks. On the game-winning attempt, Jensen pulled a backhand deke back to his forehand in one slick motion before, with a quick release, tucking the puck just inside the blocker-side post and past Robin Rahm. Harju, who scored on the initial attempt of the shootout, registered a secondary assist on the game-tying goal by Calle Jarnkrok a few minutes into the second. Brynas (9-7-3-5, 38 PTS) returns home to face Farjestads (10-7-3-4, 40 PTS) on Thursday.

    Vasily Koshechkin was a perfect 5 for 5 in the shootout to lead Cherepovets to a 4-3 victory over SKA St. Peterburg. Ex-Lightning forward Evgeny Artyukhin scored a penalty shot on Koshechkin in the Third Period to force the game into overtime, but Koshechkin stood tall against an SKA shootout slate that included Ilya Kovalchuk and Maxim Afingoenov to earn the W. Cherepovets sits in 5th in the Western Conference, 1 point ahead of Janus and Slovan Bratislava. They rematch St. Petersburg on Wednesday.

    HockeyAllsvenskan (Sweden)
    Vasteras 5 vs. Karlskoga 1

    Brendan Mikkelson, Vasteras, 0-1-1, +1, 2 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 5 GP, 0-1-1, E, 4 PIM

    Patrik Berglund and Matt Fornataro scored less than a minute apart near the middle of the second period to break up a one-all tie and help push Vasteras, now 4-1 with Brendan Mikkelson in the lineup, to victory Saturday night that put the home club within reach of first place. Mikkelson registered his first point of the season with a primary assist on Mikael Backlund's third period goal. On the play, Mikkelson sidestepped a fore-checker at the top of the left circle while looking to escape his own zone and then, after slipping into the neutral zone, fed a cross-ice pass slightly slightly behind a hard-charging Backlund who tapped the puck between his legs from behind in stride before firing a heavy wrister as he slowed up near the right hash that beat Karlskoga netminder Joel Gistedt. Berglund scored another goal, a short-handed empty-netter, during garbage time after Karlskoga, in a last act of desperation, pulled Gistedt despite being behind by three goals. Vasteras' Lars Johansson was a rock in net, stopping 37 of 38 shots to earn his 14th win. Vasteras (13-7-2-0, 43 PTS) will be tested again on Tuesday when they take on Leksands (13-3-1-4, 45 PTS), the league's other co-leader.

    Elitserien (Sweden)
    Brynas 5 vs. MODO 6 (OT)

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 1-0-1, +4, 3 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 23 GP, 8-4-12, +3, 29 PIM

    Brynas earned a point but squandered three separate leads, twice after being up by two goals, en route to its fifth-straight loss at home. David Gunnarsson scored for MODO just 19 seconds after Calle Jarnkrok put Brynas ahead with just under seven minutes to play in regulation and Richie Regehr finished MODO's comeback with less than a minute remaining in the overtime session by striking on the power play. MODO won the special teams battle, scoring two timely goals with the man-advantage in three opportunities while Brynas failed to solve the MODO penalty-kill four different times. Daniel Widing had hat trick in what amounted to a whale of a game (4 PTS, +3, 6 SOG) for Brynas' right-winger. Harju, who helped pad the home club's initial lead in the first period after getting behind the opposing defenders and gathering a stretch pass that sent him in alone on MODO netminder Bernhard Starkbaum, was one of the even-strength stalwarts tonight and shared the night's best +/- rating with teammate Sebastian Enterfeldt, who assisted on three Brynas goals. Up next for Brynas (9-7-3-4, 37 PTS) is a tilt against slumping AIK (6-12-1-4, 24 PTS), which has had its own troubles closing out games and has a league-high four losses in overtime, on Tuesday.

    SM-Liiga (Finland)
    Ilves 1 vs. Assat 3

    Anders Lindback, Ilves, L, 2.02 GAA, 31/33 (.939 SV%)
    Season totals: 5 GP, 1-3-1, 0 SO, 3.75 GAA, 138/157 (.879 SV%)

    Anders Lindback had his best game since his SM-Liiga debut a few weeks back but an empty-net goal in the final minute helped Assat edge past Ilves Friday night. Assat broke a scoreless tie in the second period when Michael Ryan scored twice in a three-minute span as the second period winding down. Kai Kantola helped Ilves make things somewhat interesting by scoring early in the third period but further offensive momentum proved difficult to generate. Ilves (league-worst 19 points) will have some extended time to prepare for their next game against the Espoo Blues (36 points) next Wednesday. Ilves won the last match between the two clubs, 4-3, earlier this month.

    Russia 5 @ Team WHL 2

    D Nikita Nesterov, RUS: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM
    Series totals: 6 GP, 0-0-0, E, 6 PIM

    D Artem Sergeev, RUS: Did not play

    G Andrei Vasilevskiy, RUS: Did not play

    Russia finished the Subway Super Series with a record of 3-2-0-1 after defeating the WHL, 5-2, on Thursday night in Victoria, B.C. Top Lightning prospect Andrei Vasilevskiy served as backup to Andrei Makarov, who started his second game in a row for Russia. He took a shutout into the shootout in Russia's first game against the WHL.

    Russia wanted to bring over a strong representation this year in preparation for the upcoming World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia. It's safe to say they succeeded, as they won the series for the first time.
