Prospect Notes: Dmitri Kazionov scored a beauty on Bronsard, streaking uncovered past the defenders and then putting the puck top shelf
in the closer corner of the net. Montreal’s Alexander Buturlin had another strong game. The young forward had several great chances to score himself, and made a couple of
good feeds to Boikov, though the latter once could not get the shot off and the second time hit the goalie. Gutov scored a goal off Buturlin’s pass, and could have scored
another, but could not connect on the setup.
