Found January 13, 2013 on Diehardsport:
After watching Pavel Datsyuk dazzle in the shootout during the skills competition on Saturday, Novosibirsk Siber forward Jori Lehtera had this fantastic move during his penalty shot on Sunday.  The goalie assumed that when he put the puck through his legs that he would pull the puck far side, and he paid for it.  This was a fantastic and unique move that you might see more of in the future after its success here.[YouTube]

Pavel Datsyuk impresses at KHL All Star Game Skills Competition Shootout

Pavel Datsyuk made the decision to participate in the KHL All Star weekend instead of returning to the U.S. right away to get ready for the Red Wings training camp.  At first I was worried, but he doesn’t need training camp.  These moves just continue to show that he is in mid-season form and his performances in the KHL have been awesome.  I can’t wait to see him back in a...

Red Wings’ Datsyuk dekes and dangles at KHL All-Star Game, feels badly about leaving Russian fans

The KHL's All-Star Game skills competition took place today in Chelyabinsk, and if you're interested, a little birdie sent Paul and I a video of the shootout event--with Red WIngs forward Pavel Datsyuk showing up around the 7:45 mark...   There are more videos available at the KHL's English-language website, if you are interested in that sort of thing, and...

Red Wings evening news: everybody passed their physicals; Krupa says Datsyuk is no Kovalchuk

Good evening. How was your afternoon? Did you enjoy the weather if you live in Michigan? Or watch football? I tried to wait out the ridiculously appropriate delays in the passage of the "Memorandum of Understanding," the NHLPA's ratification of the CBA (I think that many of those abstentions were de-facto "no" votes), and then I took a nap. A couple hours...

The NHL is starting their 48-game schedule on January 19, 2013 and ending on April 27, 2013, with no inter-conference games.  So this is clearly the last time I will have a chance to post something about hockey that isn't happening in the NHL.  Check out this crazy penalty shot goal during the Kontinental Hockey League All-Star game.  Finnish hockey player Jori Lehtera stunned...

Red Wings training camp day 2, post 2: on Datsyuk, Zettercaptain, goalies and winning back fan trust

Updated 2x at 3:38 PM: Aside from news that Mikael Samuelsson has a sore groin and did not skate today for precautionary reasons, and that Darren Helm won't skate until Thursday at the earliest, day 2 of the Red Wings' training camp did not include too many surprises, and now quips and quotes are starting to roll in. MLive's Ansar Khan reports that those of you who...

Red Wings pre-Zetterberg announcement mashup: Datsyuk muses about Russian return, injury updates etc

Brunner excited to begin NHL career

PLYMOUTH, Mich. It's quite the luxury to begin your NHL career playing on a line with Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg. But that's what new Red Wing Damien Brunner will experience this week. "That's the easiest thing in the world," Zetterberg said about playing with Datsyuk. Zetterberg is used to playing with Datsyuk but for Brunner it's going to...

Goal of the year? '08 Blues pick dazzles in KHL ASG

The NHL regular season is just a few days away, but we might have already seen the best goal of the year. During Sunday's Kontinental Hockey League All-Star game, 2008 Blues draft pick and Sibir Novosibirsk forward Jori Lehtera left goalie Rastislav Stana completely flummoxed with his incredible penalty shot goal. Here's hoping the NHL brings us some more incredible goals...

Have We Seen Every Penalty Shot Now...???

((HT: KHL)) The HQ will admit that we watch hockey rather religiously- regardless of level because we like it when skilled players put the biscuit in the basket... The KHL All-Star Game finished up 18-11 for the west, which is about par for the course in these things... But, we'll admit that we have now seen every alternative for penalty shots that we could possibly...

Our NHL Anticipation Meter Just Broke

With the return of the NHL less than a week away we’ve turned our anger for abandonment into anticipation for seeing moves like this. For the past few months, our only outlet for contemporary hockey highlights was to venture overseas, where a good slice of European NHL players migrated to during the lockout. With that, the NHL players are all but settled in back in the states,...
