Team Russia Opens SUBWAY Super Series with 5-4 Win
A very skilled and highly motivated Team Russia squad came into Harbour Station ready to play tonight in the opening game of the 2010 Subway Super Series. Maxim Kitsyn led the way for the Russians, scoring two goals and setting up another in a 5-4 victory over the QMJHL All-Stars 5-4 in front of a full house of 6,488 fans. [...] The Russian delegation of All-Stars didn’t take too long to tie the contest up at one as Maxim Kitsyn beat Olivier Roy with an accurate wrist-shot over his glove at 5:29. Phillip Danault made a sensational play with a man down, poke-checking the puck from a Russian defender in his own zone to create a two-on-one opportunity which enabled teammate Nicolas Deslauriers to put the home team up 2-1 at 14:21.
Two goals and one assist for Kitsyn. One goal for Deslauriers. And Jean-Francois Berube played the second half of the game for the QMJHL, allowing 2 goals on either 16 or 18 shots, I forget.
