KHL Games Streaming Video: Sep 30 – Oct 5 (Top 2 Collide)

Sep 30

CSKA Moscow @  Severstal Cherepovets
Watch Streaming Video

Oct 1

Metallurg Novokuznetsk @  AK Bars Kazan
Watch Streaming Video

One of those games we got a chance to see for ourselves. A great, open game played at an incredible pace. Boris Mikhaylov’s troops from Novokuznetsk were not afraid to get into a run and gun contest with the one of the KHL’s powerhouses, Ak Bars Kazan. It was also our first chance to see the 16-year old Maxim Kitsyn, the youngest player in the KHL. He’s #91 (sporting a full face shield) on the Metallurg squad.

Spartak Moscow @  Lokomotiv Yaroslavl

Oct 3

Atlant Mytischi @  Avangard Omsk
Watch Streaming Video

This week’s must see game features currently the top 2 teams in the KHL. These are also two hottest teams in the league coming into the game on long winning streaks. Atlant won 6 straight while Avangard is on a 7-game winning streak (which coincidentally or not started right after they fired their coach… who said Jaromir Jagr can’t be a player coach?). The game also features the current points leader in the entire league, Sergei Mozyakin of Atlant and the current top goal scorer, Jaromir Jagr (10). New York Rangers prospect Alexei Cherepanov is coming into the match on his own streak having scored goals in 5 straight games and having scored points in 7 straight. If all of this weren’t enough the game also features two former NHL goalies, John Graham of Ak Bars and Ray Emery of Atlant. Both are playing very well so far sporting a .930 save percentage. We just had to check this one out for ourselves and it didn’t disappoint.

Oct 4

Traktor Chelyabinsk @  Metallurg Magnitogorsk
Watch Streaming Video

Magnitka’s first game after the Victoria Cup game vs. the New York Rangers turned into quite an ill tempered affair. Fans of hockey fisticuffs might want to check this one out. Who says Russians don’t fight?

Spartak Moscow @  Severstal Cherepovets
Watch Streaming Video

Severstal is flying high after a slow start having won their last 4 games coming into this one. 18-year old Montreal Canadiens prospect Maxim Trunev is in the line-up for the club from Cherepovets.

Oct 5

Metallurg Novokuznetsk @  Salavat Yulayev Ufa
Watch Streaming Video

Another chance to see the 16-year old Maxim Kitsyn, this time in a game vs. last season’s Russian Superliga champs, Salavat. For Salavat this is the last KHL game before they make their debut in the brand new European Champions League.

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.

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.

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.
