CSKA
Moscow vs.
Severstal Cherpovets 4:2


January 29, 2003,
Moscow


Goals:

0:1 Nikitenko 7 (Dobryshkin, 9.52, sh.), 1:1 Baranov

Berdnikov, 57.50), 4:2 Zolotov 3 (Zhurik, 59.56, sh.).


Prospect Notes:

It appears that Calgary Flames
prospect Yuri Trubachev has been moved down to Severstal▓s fourth line
and was replaced by the seasoned veteran Alexander Golts on DobryshkinNikitenko
pairing. The line has once again has become very effective, but didn▓t
really help Severstal in this game. Yuri didn▓t get silenced by the fourth
line, scoring his fourth of the season. 2003 NHL Entry Draft prospect
Nikolai Zherdev
played a solid, physical game. He did take an unnecessary
penalty, but scored a very pretty goal of a give and take with Kolkunov. Tampa
Bay Lightning prospect Alexander Polushin scored a pretty goal by faking
out the goalie onto the ice and then going top shelf.

Konstantin Glazachev had a couple of solid moments, though came up empty handed
until his goal with four minutes remaining in the game. Washington▓s Ivan
Nepriayev
