SHOTS: 23 (5, 6, 12) - 23 (6, 10, 7).
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.
04/24/2007 Team Russia boosted by NHL young guns

Team Russia coaching staff have released three more players – goalie Semen Varlamov (Washington Capitals) and forwards Albert Leschev and Alexei Simakov . Leschev has struggled to find chemistry with his HC Khimik linemate Mozyakin and Lokomotiv forward Evgeny Artyukhin at the EuroTour finals. Concequently, both forwards were released with Mozyakin likely moving to a line with NHL forwards. In regards to Varlamov, he was released in favor of more experienced goalies Vasily Koshechkin (Tampa Bay Lightning) and Alexei Eremenko.
