04/08/2008 Finals - Lokomotiv vs. Salavat Yulayev 1:4 (series 1:2) - Lokomotiv on the brink

Super League -  The game opened up with Sidyakinís goal on the sixth shot of the game. Lokomotiv did not give up and tied the game towards the end of the first period, but the small victory was short lived as Lokomotiv was unable to stay out of the penalty box, allowing the next two goals shorthanded. Semen Varlamov (Washington Capitals) had no chance on the second goal, the third was a bit weak by Kuteikin, while the fourth was a laser by Alexander Perezhogin (Montreal Canadiens) with just over two minutes left in the game, destroying any doubt in the victor of the match. Now Salavat has a 2:1 lead, painting Lokomotiv in the corner and accomplishing the mission of having a match to spare and winning at least one contest in Yaroslavl.

Talent Analysis:
2001-02 Update:
Alexander Perezhogin spent the 2000-01 season playing for Avangard’s farm team, Avangard VDV. There he centered a line between Calgary Flames prospect Andrei Taratukhin and Chicago Blackhawks prospect Alexander Golovin. Prior to the beginning of the 2001-02 season, the entire line, including Alexander has been loaned to Mostovik Kuragan. In the first 2 months of the 2001-02 season Alexander’s line has dominated the Upper League. Andrei Taratukhin and Alexander Perezhogin are ranked first and second in scoring in the Upper League respectively, while Golovin is 10th. This has been a significant achievement for the trio, as they have moved up from the 1st league which comprises mainly of junior players into the Upper League, which still lacks the skill level of the Super League, but pins them against respectably skilled adult players. Alexander has not only been able to compete at the new level, has been able to outright dominate.

Alexander Perezhogin is a speedy winger who possesses size and abilities to earn a spot in the NHL. Alexander skates very well and uses his strong acceleration to create scoring chances. Though Alexander is considered a natural scorer by many experts, he is also a solid playmaker, able to create opportunities not only for himself but also for his teammates. If he can’t get past the defense with his good puck handling abilities, he can make a solid pass to one of his teammates. Another great upside of Alexander is his constant determination and his work ethic. Vladimir Plyuschev, head coach of the gold winning 2001 U18 World Junior Championships Russian Team (and now head coach of the Russian U20 Junior program) describes Alexander Perezhogin’s game as such: "Usefullness, an amazing determination and a all out effort. It is unfortunate that not always his efforts turn into goals, he is not always lucky in finishing. Though he was amongst our best in his contribution. I am very happy with Sash [Alex
Back In Russia:
Alexander Perezhogin started his hockey career in Ust Kamenogorsk in the Soviet republic of Kazakhstan. Five years ago he made a journey from Kazakhstan to Omsk along with his head coach Sergei Gersonsky, who became the head coach of Avangard’s farm team Avangard VDV. Ever since then he has steadily developed in Avangard’s system. During the last few seasons Alexander’s line, Perezhogin
NHL Outlook:
Montreal Canadiens drafte Alexander Perezhogin 25th overall in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. He has developed well in Russia, maturing as a sniper. The young forward experienced a breakout year during the 2002-03 season, becoming a full fledged threat with Avangard, as well as the Russian National Team. The Montreal Canadiens signed three contract with the talented forwrad during the summer, and he is likely to make the big club out of training camp.
