Molot Prikamye vs. SKA St.Petersburg
0:1


February 18th, 2003, Perm



Goals:


0:1 Gorbushin 5 (39.26).



Prospect Notes:


Chicago Blackhawks prospect Sergei
Shikhanov had a couple of good
chances. He has really come around
lately, but his efforts weren’t
enough to get Molot on the boards
and out of the basement.

February 18th, 2003, Moscow



Goals:


1:0 Salnikov 5 (Rakhmatulin, Ivanov,
15.56), 1:1 Krivokrasov 16 (Pokotilo,
Ustyugov, 49.27).



Prospect Notes:


Detroit Red Wings prospect
Anatoly Ustyugov
continued to
make an impact on Amur’s top line.
He had a helper on Amur’s only goal,
which was scored by a former NHLer,
Sergei Krivokrasov


 



Mechel Chelyabinsk vs. CSKA

Moscow 0:3


February 18th, 2003, Chelyabinsk



Goals:


0:1 Baranov 6 (Leschev, Zherdev,
31.26), 0:2 Gorbunov 4
(31.57), 0:3 Mozyakin 9 (34.04, ps.).



Prospect Notes:


Dallas Stars defensive prospect
Vadim Khomitsky
had a couple of
dangerous shots from the blue line,
though he didn’t manage to get on
the board. The first goal was scored
by Philadelphia Flyers prospect
Konstantin Baranov
, who put the
rebound off Nikolai Zherdev’s
shot. The second goal
was scored by New York Islanders
prospect Vladimir Gorbunov,
just 30 seconds after the first
goal. He ended up in front of
Mechel’s net “unattended” along with
Shkotov and put the puck in the five
hole of Mechel’s goalie. St. Louis
Blues prospect Alexei Shkotov
skated on CSKA’s second line, along
side of Gorbunov. 



 



Spartak Moscw vs. Sibir Novosibirsk
2:0


February 18th, 2003, Moscow


Andrei Medvedev. Photo from Ves Hokkei (http://www.hockeynewsonline.com)
Prospect
Notes:


The hero of the game was Calargary
Flames prospect Andrei Medvedev,
who earned a shutout in his first
start in quite a while.   The
Filatov – Upper (New York
Islanders) – Bezrukov (
Tampa Bay) continued
to be Spartak’s sword.  The line
combined for the team’s both goals
and played solid defensively. 



 



Lada Togliatti vs. Dynamo

Moscow 2:0


February 18th, 2003, Togliatti



Goals:


1:0 Semin 6 (Nesterov, 9.19),
2:0 Cierny 5 (Kazionov,
33.26).



Prospect Notes:


Los Angeles Kings goaltending
prospect Alexei Volkov made
his third start in a row, trying to
bu
ild
on the two
previous shutouts for Dynamo. He
took the loss, though it can’t be
said that he played badly.  Just as
rare was Tampa Bay prospect
Dmitri Kazionov’s
appearance in
Lada’s lineup, which was missing
Detroit Red Wings prospect Igor
Grigorenko
on the top line.
Kazionov played on the first line
and had a great chance in the first
period, but failed to beat Volkov,
who apparently sat on the puck. 
Kazionov did get on the board midway
through the second period, assisting
on Cierny’s stinger from almost the
blue line. Let’s hope it is a start
of a new beginning for these guys.
Washington Capitals prospect
Alexander Semin scored Lada’s first
goal. The game just wasn’t going
Dynamo’s way – Ovechkin hit
the goal post,

Minnesota’s
prospect Oleg Orekhovsky
broke his stick in a middle of a
scoring drive.


 



Avangard Omsk vs. Salavat Yulayev
2:1


February 18th, 2003, Omsk

6.09), 1:1 Gorovikov 6 (Petrunin,
15.13, sh.), 2:1 Vlasak 15 (Prokhaska,
19.49).



Prospect Notes:


An
other scoring streak? It may be
back to that again, as Dallas Stars
prospect Artem Chernov scored
his _ of the season while playing on
Avangard’s _ line with the Czechs
Patera and Vlasak.  He was knocked
down in front of the goalie, but
managed to slide the puck underneath
the goalie while falling to the
ice.  Artem showed off his strong
shot a couple of more times, but
without a result.
