|How about now?|
|The three muskedeers.|
Loko broke the losing streak Friday with a 3-2 win over Salavat at home. Curtis Sanford gave up two goal early, but Yegor Averin tied it with two of his own. Then it was the blistering hot Artym Anisimov who took a cross-crease pass that left him with so much empty net right in front that KC said watching the video, "He coulda blew that one in."
|And he huffed, and he puffed...|
Earlier in the game, Niklaus Hagman was whistled for allegedly firing the puck into the crowd. But as Hagman stepped into the box...
"Hey, what's this..."
"The puck! It didn't go into the crowd, it went into the penalty box! Hey! Hey, Ref!"
"I'll take that puck..."
"Piss off, idiot lineman. Hey! REF!"
Of course the ref refused to listen, and after about a fifteen second game of keep away between the lineman and Hagman, Hagman's penalty put us two men down and led to the first goal. But all's well that ends well.
Something that can't be said in St. Petersburg. SKA played two games under their interim coach after firing Milos Riha for not being in first place good enough, and lost both. They dropped the first to Donbass 3-2, and then got blasted by then last-in-the-conference Spartak 6-1 yesterday. Before the game, SKA announced that their new coach, effective after the Spartak game, would be Team Finland coach Jukka Jalonen, who will do his TF duties simultaneously. At least he's got a day job.
With Dynamo Moscow getting a 4-2 win over Donbass thanks to Alex Ovechkin's hat trick, Dynamo now has a 6-point lead over Loko, SKA, and Avangard (who just passed Traktor in the Eastern Conference.
