Russia Storms Back to Beat WHL 7-6 in Shootout
Team WHL looked to have control of the game after taking a 6-3 lead in the third period on power play goals less than a minute apart from the Regina Pats’ Jordan Weal and Saskatoon Blades’ Curtis Hamilton. However, the Russians stormed back with three goals in a 1:42 span to tie the game at 6-6 and send it to the shootout. Sergei Kalinin, the Russian side’s Player of the Game, scored just 38 seconds after Hamilton had made it 6-3. Maxim Kitsyn – on the power play – and Artem Voronin followed with goals 46 seconds apart to knot up the contest.
Kitsyn leads all players in the tournament with 2 goals and 4 assists. Of course, the Russians have played six games, while the CHL players have seen only one or two games. Weal, Toffoli, Vey and Nicolas Deslauriers have a point each.
