    C Cedric Paquette, QMJHL: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM (holding the stick)
    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.

    D Artem Sergeev, RUS: Did not play
    Series totals: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

    G Andrei Vasilevski, RUS: W, 31/33 (.940 SV%), Player of the Game
    Series totals: 1-0-0, 2.00 GAA, 31/33 (.940 SV%)

    C Cedric Paquette, QMJHL: 0-0-0, E
    Series totals: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

    Andrei Vasilevski put on a show Monday night in Blainville-Boisbriand, stopping 31 shots to lead Russia to a win in the opening game of the 2012 Canada-Russia Subway Super Series. The Q has now lost five straight games to the Russians. Vasilevski, who was wearing a Lightning mask, was named Player of the Game for Russia. He made routine saves, difficult saves, and spectacular saves. The save of the game was Vasilevski doing the splits to stop a QMJHL shot from his left. He was beaten on the power play on a shot that went top corner, then late in the game Jean-Sebastien Dea lost control of the puck on a partial breakaway and the disc snuck through Vasilevski's legs. Vasilevski was playing the deke.

    Defenseman Nikita Nesterov played a significant amount of minutes for Russia and was out in all situations, including quarterbacking the power play and playing on a 5-on-3 penalty kill. He made good decisions and was praised for his "relentlessness." Lightning coach Guy Boucher will be happy about the "relentless" tag as it is one of his buzzwords.

    Cedric Paquette didn't see a lot of ice time on his home rink, but he was perhaps the most physical QMJHL player, landing at least two big hits. One led to a scoring chance on Vasilevski, but the big Russian shut the door. Paquette will not play in Wednesday's Game 2. Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev is expected to suit up for Russia in Game 2, however.

    Vasteras 6 vs. Oskarshamn 2

    Brendan Mikkelson, Vasteras, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM

    Calgary's Mikael Backlund (2 G, 2 A) and St. Louis' Patrik Berglund (1 G, 3 A) helped Vasteras cruise to victory on Sunday and, for Backlund, that made five straight games with two-plus points. While Vasteras ran into some minor penalty troubles, it was perfect on the PK, dominated in the face-off circles and roughed up Oskarshamn's Linus Fernstrom (26 S / 32 SA, .813 SV%) en route to victory. It was 5-0 in the third period before Oskarshamn was finally able to beat Lars Johansson, who was fresh after posting a shutout on Thursday, and get on the board. Johansson finished the game with 28 stops. This was Mikkelson's second game with his new club. Up next for Vasteras (12-1-6, 38 PTS) is the November break before facing Djurgarden (7-5-7, 27 PTS) on the road on the 12th.

    SM-Liiga (Finland)
    Ilves 4 vs. Blues 3

    Anders Lindback, Ilves, W, 3.00 GAA, 16/19 (.842 SV%)
    Season totals: 3 GP, 1-1-1, 0 SO, 4.22 GAA, 86/99 (.867 SV%)

    After being roughed up by SaiPa on Thursday night, Tampere rallied from a goal down in the third period to edge past Espoo Saturday for Anders Lindback's first win with his new club. Ilves enjoyed nearly twice as many shots as the Blues in the game and Lindback was sparely tested until the third period when the Blues hit double-digits in shots. Michael Keranen led the way for Tampere with an early goal and an assist (along with Mikael Kuronen) on Matias Chord's game-winner with roughly ten minutes left in regulation. Ilves heads into the November break with a league-worst 19 total points and does not play again until the Tuesday after next (the 13th) when they will face a formidable Oulu Karpat squad that is currently in third-place with 37 points but only a single point out of first.

    Elitserien (Sweden)
    Brynas 0 vs. Frolunda 4

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 5 SOG
    Season totals: 20 GP, 7-3-10, E, 29 PIM

    Locked-out Chicago Blackhawk Victor Stalberg (2 G, 1 A, 4 SOG) and former Dallas Star and Detroit Red Wing Fabian Brunnstrom (1 G, 1 A, 4 SOG) led Frolunda to a decisive victory over Toronto's Cody Franson and Brynas. Brynas only trailed by a goal through the first thirty minutes of action before Frolunda put the game out of reach by scoring twice a few minutes apart in the second and using the momentum to largely dictate play through the remainder of regulation time. Johan Harju had a game-high five shots on goal and won the only face-off he took but otherwise didn't hit the stat sheet while former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist, who stopped 29 of the 33 shots he faced, took the loss. Brynas (8-6-3-3, 33 PTS) next faces Linkoping (11-8-0-1, 34 PTS), which has won the the last five games it has played at home against Brynas, on Tuesday.

    Ravensburg 2 vs. Bietigheim 1

    Adam Hall, Ravensburg, Did not play
    Season totals: 7 GP, 2-2-4, E, 29 PIM

    Minus the presence of Adam Hall, who received a match penalty for head-butting in Wednesday's 3-0 loss to SERC, Ravensburg overcame an early deficit and narrowly outshot Bietigheim 37-32 to secure a home victory Friday night. G Christian Rohde, who earned his seventh win of the season, was a rock for the Towerstars but Jochen Vollmer delivered his own impressive performance in net for the Steelers. Christopher Oravec and Fredrik Cabana set up Matt Kelly and Radek Krestan for both Ravensburg goals. The Towerstars (6-2-1-5, 23 PTS) now head the road and will next square off against the Landshut Cannibals (5-2-5-2, 24 PTS) on Sunday.
