Here's today's KHL action featuring great goals and saves as usual. You might notice we're missing one game, and that would be CKSA Moscow (Datsyuk, Grabovski, Bryzgalov, Radulov) vs Lev Prague (Zdeno Chara). We're still working on that one. We'll include that in this post as soon as we're done!

In news that should make even the most optimistic Flames fan go "Oh, that's not good," the Abbotsford Heat quietly let it slip recently that forward Lance Bouma has injured both his MCL and ACL and will be out for an indefinite period of time. Dan Kinvig of the Abbotsford News broke the bad news yesterday.

Indulge me for a moment here folks.
As you may or may not know, I participated in a 12-team fantasy draft for the Globe and Mail with other notable sports writers and bloggers (including our own Cam Charron of LeafsNation and Eric T/Derek Zona of NHLNumbers). I was given the Boston Bruins and the first overall pick, so was able to put together a pretty solid team (Crosby and Datsyuk FTW!). James Mirtle, who set up the exercise, has an article up on the project today, with an option for everyone to vote on the best team drafted.

1. Bettman at the Islanders presser
So Gary Bettman goes out at the Islanders-to-Brooklyn press conference (more on that in a minute) and basically says there's no chance at an 82-game season. This was reported as news despite the fact that everyone on the planet more or less knew that was going to be the case anyway.

Today was actually nuts for KHL highlights, especially for upsets. Semin out-duelled Ovechkin, Fedotenko and Ponikarovsky lit up Malkin and Kulemin, Kovalchuk finally cooled off, and Artyukhin lays a hit that sends a player flying like it's a video game.
