Mikhail Grabovski drilled Colorado Avanlanche (currently Lokomotiv) goalie Semyon Varlamov right in the head in the first period of Lokomotiv’s game against CSKA Moscow on Wednesday. Was it on purpose? I’ll let you decide.
In other Wednesday KHL action, Nail Yakupov scores in the shootout, and Ilya Kovalchuk’s duo with Blues prospect Vladimir Tarasenko might be the most deadly duo in hockey right now.
As I mentioned, Grabovski clocks Varlamov, and he follows it up with a damn fine game. Varlamov is the best goalie in the KHL on the hottest team in the KHL.
Ilya Kovalchuk and Vladimir Tarasenko and dispicable.
After some rust from the Subway Super Series, and a demotion to the 3rd line, Nail Yakupov scores in the shootout.
Malkin’s squad falls to Sergei Kostitsyn’s in a battle of eastern titans.
Viktor Hedman scores two assists to lift Barys Astana over Traktor.
And errrrrthang in one.
