RSL Game of the Week: Dinamo Moscow @ Salavat Yulayev Ufa 02.19.2008

Dinamo Moscow @ Salavat Yulayev Ufa

The storied Russian franchise Dinamo Moscow, which has fallen on hard times recently under their new Czech coach Vladimír Vůjtek, faces a huge challenge away at the brand spanking new Bashneft Arena to take on this season’s undisputed king of the Russian Super League, Salavat Yulayev of Ufa. Salavat’s green monsters, thanks to Bashneft’s oil revenue, have a roster that is the envy of the rest of the league and are able to roll out four lines of pure skill.

RSL Game of the Week: Lokomotiv Yaroslavl @ Dinamo Moscow 02.02.2008

Lokomotiv Yaroslavl @ Dinamo Moscow

Semyon VarlamovWashington Capitals top prospect Semyon Varlamov is starting in goal for Lokomotiv in this game while Dinamo is mired in a 7 game losing streak, the longest in the storied franchise’s history. Their new Czech coach Vladimír Vůjtek is scratching his head and looking for answers. This is a must win for Dinamo or Vůjtek’s tenure maybe short lived indeed. However, don’t expect Lokomotiv to feel bad and just hand it to them. The Yaroslavl club is known for its uncompromising nature and is one of the more physical teams in the RSL.

We Ain’t Dead

For those who are wondering we have not gone to the edge of the Earth and dropped off the cliff. There were a few technical difficulties with the host of the games, which prevented us from posting the last RSL Game of the Week prior to the RSL going on a bit of a hiatus due to the international break for the European Hockey Tour. The technical issues have now been resolved.

To make up for our brief absence watch for 3 great RSL games to be posted later today. The first one will be the aforementioned game that was played just before the break (Lokomotiv Yaroslavl @ Dinamo Moscow). The other two will be games played in recent days since the RSL got back to business and will feature a couple of truly great match-ups: runaway league leaders Salavat Yulayev Ufa @ Avangard Omsk and a battle between last year’s finalists, Ak Bars Kazan @ Metallurg Magnitogorsk.

If there is interest we will also try to post the 2 games that the Russian national team played during the international break in the Euro Hockey Tour vs. Finland and the Czech Republic. Either comment or use the contact form to let us know if you’d like to see these games.

RSL Game of the Week: Dinamo Moscow @ Ak Bars Kazan 01.28.2008

Dinamo Moscow @ Ak Bars Kazan

Well, since we’ve just launched and also because we couldn’t pass up this great matchup we’re giving you another game this week. Yes, you’ve already earned a bonus!

The famous Dinamo Moscow (known better in the West as Dynamo) travels to Kazan to take on the resurgent powerhouse Ak Bars. After a surprisingly difficult start to the season the Kazan team is back to its best and climbing the standings. Dinamo, which came into the season with lofty expectations have struggled mightily, but are playing better since replacing Vladimir Krikunov with Czech Vladimír Vůjtek.

We’ve already listed players to watch on Ak Bars in one of the previous RSL GofW posts, so this time we’ll just give you some players to keep an eye on for the Moscovites. #7 is the up and coming Canadian defenseman Mark Giordano who went to play in Russia after a contract dispute with the Calgary Flames; #95 is a veteran of the NHL Daniil Markov who just returned to Russia after spending last season with the Detroit Red Wings; #9 is Canadian center Eric Landry who spent some time in the NHL with Calgary and Montreal; #22 is the tough hitting Oleg Orekhovsky; #13 Minnesota Wild’s prospect Roman Voloshchenko; #17 Alexander Kharitonov who spent a season in the NHL with Tampa Bay Lightning; #27 Dmitriy Afanasenkov who spent last season with the Philadelphia Flyers; #43 Vitaliy Yachmenev, formerly of the Los Angeles Kings and the Nashville Predators and #55 Dinamo’s leading scorer Alexei Badyukov.

Missing from this game is #91 Fedor Fedorov, the younger brother of Sergei Fedorov, who never quite stuck in the NHL. It is a mystery of why not since he’s looked as one of the most exciting players in the RSL this season and very much resembles his famous brother in looks, stature and skating style (maybe not the attitude towards the game). I’m sure you’ll see him in another Dinamo Moscow game after he recovers from injury.

You can watch the game in the streaming player or download the file to your computer by clicking the “Open Containing Folder” link below the player, right clicking the file and selecting the “download” option.

We recommend the free VLC media player for playing it.
