    2nd Bundesliga (Germany)
    Ravensburg 4 @ SC Riessersee 2

    Adam Hall, Ravensburg, 1-0-1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 8 GP, 3-2-5, 29 PIM

    Adam Hall scored in his first game back since receiving a match penalty against SERC as the Towerstars beat lowly Riessersee Tuesday night. St. Louis Blues forward Matt D'Agostini opened the game's scoring late in the first to give Riessersee an extremely brief lead as Matt Kelly and Hall scored just 27 and 53 seconds, respectively, after D'Agostini before Fredrik Cabana would find the net a couple minutes later to give Ravensburg a 3-1 lead heading into the first intermission. The Towerstars lead expanded to 4-1 in the second thanks Radek Krestan and would stay that way until the closing minutes of the game when the Ottawa Senators' Erik Condra, who also had an assist in the match, capitalized on a Riessersee power play. Ravensburg (7-6-2-1, 26 PTS) will return home to face Crimmitschau (5-8-3-0, 21 PTS) on Sunday.

    SM-Liiga (Finland)
    Ilves 3 @ Karpat 5

    Anders Lindback, Ilves, L, 4.06 GAA, 21/25 (.840 SV%)
    Season totals: 4 GP, 1-2-1, 0 SO, 4.19 GAA, 107/124 (.863 SV%)

    Karpat pulled away from Ilves, which has struggled all season, in the third period to hand Anders Lindback his second regulation loss. Karpat took a commanding 3-0 lead in the second when former Bolt Jussi Jokinen beat Lindback for a power play marker but with the score 4-1 early in the third, Max Talbot of the Philadelphia Flyers scored to spark an Ilves comeback that ultimately fell short when Antti Makila made it 5-3 Karpat in the final minute of play while Lindback was off for the extra-attacker. Ilves, still bringing up the SM-Liiga rear with 19 points, next faces Assat, which has 29 points to date and beat Ilves handily (6-1) the last time the two teams faced each other, on Friday.

    HockeyAllsvenskan (Sweden)
    Vasteras 3 @ Djurgarden 2 (OT)

    Brendan Mikkelson, Vasteras, 0-0-0, E, 2 SOG, 4 PIM (hooking, cross-checking)
    Season totals: 3 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM

    Vasteras is now 3-0 since Brendan Mikkelson joined the club. Patrik Berglund followed up his four-point (1 G, 3 A) performance against Oskershamn before the break with two goals Monday night, one of which was the overtime game-winner but it was netminder Lars Johansson who stole the show, stopping 40 shots en route to his 13th win this season. Johnasson now leads the league with a .942 save-percentage. Patric Hornqvist of the Nashville Predators gave Djurgardens a tenuous lead in the second period after he buried a short-handed bid just a couple minutes after teammate Erik Gustafsson, a 2012 selection (4th round) by the Edmonton Oilers, tied the game at one. Chet Pickard, selected 18th overall by Nashville in 2008, stopped 17 shots to take the loss. Vasteras (12-6-2-0, 40 PTS) now returns home to face Malmo (8-9-2-1, 29 PTS) on Wednesday.

    Elitserien (Sweden)
    Brynas 4 @ Linkopings 1

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 21 GP, 7-4-11, +1, 29 PIM

    Bolstered by Andreas Thuresson's two goals and and Robin Rahm's steady performance (28 total saves) in net, Brynas leapfrogged Linkopings in the standings with a decisive road victory. Johan Harju had the primary assist on what proved to be the game-winning goal by Sebastian Enterfeldt with just over three minutes remaining in the first. Harju now has points (2 goals, 2 assists) in three of his last four Elitserien games dating back to October 30th. Calle Jarnkrok, selected in the 2nd round of the 2010 NHL entry draft by Detroit, hit the stat sheet with two assists. Late in the second period, Simon Hjalmarsson managed the lone score for Linkopings, which sent plenty of rubber (23 shots) Rahm's way over the middle and final frame but could not get the score any closer. Up next for Brynas (9-6-3-3, 36 PTS) is a showdown with league-leading HV 71, (12-4-3-1, 43 PTS), which has won the last three matches between the two clubs, on Thursday.

    Team OHL avenged their first-ever loss to the Russians in the Subway Super Series with a 2-1 win on Monday night in Sarnia. Russia beat the OHL, 2-1, last week. The OHL outshot Russia 28-16 in the match, including 13-5 while holding a 1-0 lead entering the third period. Russia managed a goal with just over 30 seconds left in the game. The game-winning goal was scored when Vasilevskiy (pictured) deflected a hard low shot from his right to the weak side, where an unmarked Frankie Corrado (Canucks) had crept in from the point and deposited the puck into an empty net. Vasilevskiy made several remarkable saves to keep his team in the game and was named Player of the Game for the Russian side for the second time in three starts. Fellow Lightning prospect Nikita Nesterov wore an alternate captain's A for Russia and played in all game situations.

    Russia (2-2) will play the WHL starting on Wednesday in Vancouver.

    Series totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM

    Playing their third game in four nights and with much of the same roster from last night's 5-2 loss in Val d'Or to the QMJHL squad, Russia found a way to dig deep late in the game and pull off a gritty comeback win, its first ever win over the OHL in 19 total series matches, by scoring two goals in 24 seconds with under ten minutes remaining Thursday night in Guelph.

    With Andrei Vasilevskiy in need of rest after starting the first two games, it was Igor Ustinskiy who got the start and, with a team that looked on the ropes though much of the first two periods of play, earned some honors by stopping all but one of the 24 shots he faced. Boston's Malcolm Subban, selected in the first round of the 2012 draft just like Vasilevskiy, started in net for the OHL but was pulled in favor of Jordan Binnington (Blues) after seeing little action--just seven shots--in what amounted to a little more than the first half of the game. It was Binnington who allowed the late back-to-back goals to Anton Shenfeld and Blackhawks 2011 4th rounder Maxim Shulanov for Russia.

    With Sergeev scratched, that left Nesterov and Koekkoek as the only Lightning prospects in action in tonight's game. Nesterov was on the ice helping man the power play for Russia when Tyler Graovac scored Canada's lone goal of the game short-handed, but was steady on the Russian back end and seemed right at home in a game that was characterized by its physicality and board play. Koekkoek flashed his two-way ability on multiple occasions tonight, even joining the rush and, during prolonged stretches of offensive zone time, driving the net or pinching deep. However, he was also on the ice, as was his defensive partner Ryan Murphy (Hurricanes), for both Russian goals at the tail end of the game which left the OHL team and the roughly 5,000-strong home crowd stunned.

    Koekkoek was caught out out of position when Shenfeld pulled a subtle outside-in deke to move in between the two Canadian defenders and snapped a shot untouched from the mid-slot that sped past Binnington's right blocker shoulder and tucked in under or off the crossbar. On the second Russian goal, Shalunov sped away from Murphy just outside the Russian blueline to create a 2-on-1 that Koekkoek defended properly by taking away the pass and giving his goaltender an opportunity to make the save. Binnington didn't, letting Shalunov's ice-level wrister beat him five-hole as he dropped into the butterfly.

    The series will continue when both teams meet again in Sarnia on Monday night.

    Series totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM

    Cedric Paquette and Team QMJHL got the better of fellow Lightning prospects Nikita Nesterov, Artem Sergeev, and Andrei Vasilevskiy and the rest of Team Russia Wednesday night in Val d'Or, with Florida Panthers prospect Jonathan Huberdeau (2 G, 1 A) and two 2013 draft-eligible forwards, the highly-touted Nathan MacKinnon (1 G, 3 A) and Jonathan Drouin (1 G, 3 A) leading the way for the Q.

    Vasilevskiy's numbers for the evening look ugly and he may not have been at his absolute best, but the young Russian netminder's performance was better than his numbers might otherwise suggest. On the balance, the Russian skaters played effectively in spurts but were also on their heels, losing battles along the boards and races to the puck, periodically.

    Nesterov, who was reliable and versatile as he always seems to be for a good chunk of his ice time, probably wishes he could have some shifts back in the second during which he alternately was muscled off the puck, had his pocket picked and late getting to a loose puck in the neutral zone, his hesitation resulting in the puck getting chipped past him to set up the 2-on-0 break that ended with Huberdeau scoring Canada's second goal by quickly firing a cross-crease dish from MacKinnon past Vasilevskiy's outstretched right pad and skate.

    Sergeev and Paquette quietly logged their minutes, though Paquette, who wasn't expected to play in this game, took an early penalty that gave Russia, which failed to score on the six opportunities it had, its first power play of the game.
