    Wow. In a series often dominated by the CHL's all-star teams because the Russians send their second and third string juniors, Russia has had a stunning start. Tonight, they defeated the QMJHL All-Stars 5-4 in the shootout to sweep the opening leg of the Subway Superseries. Up next: the OHL All-Stars tomorrow night. Lightning prospect Nikita Kucherov (pictured) helped lead the way with the game opening goal and a helper on a late goal that fell 15 seconds short of being the winner. He also converted on his lone shootout attempt. For his part, defenseman Nikita Nesterov was also a solid +3 in the match.

    Season totals: 15 GP, 7-6-0, 1 SO, 2.84 GAA, .914 sv%

    That's back-to-back dismal performances for Vasily Koshechkin, as Cherepovets was fed their hats by Slovakian club Poprad today, 5-0. Despite Poprad's offensive onslaught, ex-Bolt Prospect Vladimir Mihalik was scoreless in the match. He did manage a couple of minors for high sticking and delay of game, though. Cherepovets will try to right the ship against Dynamo Minsk on Friday.

    No way. Riku Helenius posted his third straight shutout in JYP's 4-0 thumping of Ilves Tampere. I could not make this up if I tried. Helenius earned second star honors for his effort.
