GAME NOTES: Konstantin Barulin (St. Louis Blues)
put on a shaky showing for the national team, allowing all three goals against Austria. At the same time, Alexander Eremenko
was quite solid and will likely backup Vasily Koshechkin (Tampa Bay Lightning)
at the World Championships. Alexander Frolov (Los Angeles Kings)
and Alexander Ovechkin (Washington Capitals)
skated on the second line with Alexei Kaigorodov (Phoenix Coyotes)
at center. Frolov scored two goals, while Ovechkin still looked a bit out of place. Interestingly, Kiril Koltsov (Vancouver Canucks)
skated with Andrei Markov (Montreal Canadiens)
on the second defensive pairing, which will hopefully give the young defenseman some additional experience prior to making another attempt at the NHL this summer.
