Prospect Notes: Sergei Soin (Nashville Predators) was CSKA’s
most colorful forward of the game. He managed to set up a great goal for Yuri
Bytsayev
in the first period, then take an unnecessary roughing penalty
in the second period that lead to a goal. He redeemed himself again in
the third period by tying the game. Philadelphia Flyers prospect Konstantin
Rudenko
scored made a nice feed to Antipov for Lokomotiv’s second
goal of the game. He patiently held the puck on the three on two breakout before
passing the puck to Antipov, who was screaming down the center. Alexander
Ryazantsev
(Washington Capitals) scored his second goal of the season
using his powerful, precise slapshot from the blue line, which went above the
goalie’s shoulder, right under the crossbar. The line Mozyakin
(Columbus Blue Jackets) – Gorbunov – Subbotin was very
effectiveall night, account for two goals by Vladimir Gorbunov (New
York Islanders), who scored the first one off a nice feed from Mozyakin to the
crease, and the second goal off a rebound from Mozyakin’s shot. Nikolai
Zherdev
(Columbus Blue Jackets) had a couple of scoring chances, but
wasn’t able to capitalize.
