    After 60 scoreless minutes, Team WHL scored three times on four attempts to beat the Russians in the shootout Wednesday in Vancouver.

    Hunter Shinkurak, Mark McNeill and Sam Reinhart each tallied goals in the shootout, and WHL netminder Laurent Broissant stopped all three shots he faced. During regulation, the Flames prospect stopped 30 shots and Andei Makarov made 35 saves in the Russian net.

    Lightning prospect Nikita Nesterov, who wore an A for Russia, was whistled for a pair of minor penalties in the third period, once for interference at the 2:55 mark and once for holding at 12:59. Shinkurak went to the box for a coincidental minor (unsportsmanlike conduct for embellishment) with Nesterov on the latter penalty.

    Team WHL went 0-for-3 on the power play, while Russia went 0-for-2 with the man-advantage.

    Trailing in points 8-7, Russia (2-2-0-1) wraps up the Subway Series against the WHL in Victoria, B.C. Thursday.

    Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

    Quebec Remparts 4 @ Rimouski Oceanic 5

    W Nikita Kucherov, QUE: Did not play
    Season totals: 6 GP, 3-7-10, -1, 2 PIM

    Nikita Kucherov and his 6-game point streak were scratched on Wednesday as fellow Rempart import Nick Sorensen took his place in the lineup. CHL teams can only dress two import players, and Mikhail Grigorenko is the team points leader, so he’s unlikely to come out. Sorensen (2013), who has sat for the last handful of games, had a goal and an assist in the Remparts’ loss to Rimouski. Grigorenko (Sabres) had a goal to give him 17 in 19 games. He has 37 points this year. The Lightning skipped over Grigorenko in the 2012 draft in favor of defenseman Slater Koekkoek, which better filled an organizational need. Sooner or later Quebec General Manager Patrick Roy will have to trade one of his import stars, especially if the NHL lockout continues so the Sabres can’t solve that problem for him.

    Val-d’Or Foreurs 3 @ Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2

    D Artem Sergeev, VDO: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season totals: 21 GP, 4-9-13, +5, 10 PIM

    Artem Sergeev is scoreless in his last three games, which matches his longest scoreless streak of the season. He has one assist in his last six games. Earlier this year he snapped out of a 3-game scoreless streak with six points in his next three games.

    Ontario Hockey League

    Brampton Battalion 4 @ Sudbury Wolves 2

    D Dylan Blujus, BRAM: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 21 GP, 1-8-9, -9, 20 PIM

    Matej Machovsky (undrafted) stopped 29 of 31 shots to earn first star honors for Brampton as they won on the road in Sudbury.

    Guelph Storm 1 @ Belleville Bulls 2 (SO)

    C/W Tanner Richard, GUE: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 19 GP, 2-22-24, +4, 42 PIM

    Belleville’s Malcolm Subban (Bruins) won a goaltending battle with Garrett Sparks (Leafs) as the Bulls defeated the Storm, 2-1, in a shootout. Subban was 35/36 in regulation and overtime, then 1 for 2 in the shootout. That was good enough to beat Sparks, who had 41 saves through overtime, but was 0 for 2 in the shootout. Malcolm’s brother, Jordan, scored the shootout winner for Belleville. Lightning prospect Tanner Richard did not participate in the shootout, but had the primary assist on Guelph’s second period goal.

    D Artem Sergeev, RUS: Did not play

    Series totals: 1-2-0, 3.01 GAA, .903 sv%

    D Slater Koekkoek, OHL: Did not play
    Series totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM

    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.
