Not gonna lie to you - not a lot of huge names in these games. There. I was straight up. But there are some great highlights, including one goal I'd put in the conversation for goal of the year in the Ak Bars vs. Neftekhimik game.

Mikhail Grabovski scores a nice OT-winner, some wicked saves between Dynamo Moscow and Slovan, and more! If you have to watch just ONE game, watch SKA-Red Army. Great game.

1. It seems this is a thing now
Pierre LeBrun recently posted a list of 10 things he thought the league could do to make this whole "second lockout in eight years" thing up to the fans. Then Greg Wyshynski posted his list of five things the league could do. There was some overlap, and the areas where they agreed came because they were sensible. Free Center Ice for everyone? Yeah, that's obvious. Playing 3-on-3 overtime after the traditional 4-on-4 is also a way to get around of the shootout in many games, which is terrible and awful.

The World Juniors kicked off on Wednesday in Ufa, Russia and Flames players performed rather well in their first games. Meanwhile, it seems like a Flames pro prospect might return to his junior squad.

While it's probably prudent to curb ones enthusiasm, given Team Canada's opening game at the World Junior Championship in Russia amounted to little more than a controlled scrimmage against an overmatched opponent, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins gave fans plenty to cheer about in a 9-3 waltz over Germany today.
