Canada's Juniors Win Opener

Sounds like goaltending prospect Simeon Varlamov and the Russians got roughed up a little bit in today's 4-2 loss to Canada in the first game of the Super Series.

From CP's gamer:

Ilya Kablukov and Alexander Ryabev spotted Russia a 2-0 lead with goals within the first 10 minutes of the game. Washington Capitals draft pick Semen Varlamov stopped 19 of 23 shots in the loss.
The second of the eight-game series is Wednesday (Sportsnet, 9 a.m. ET) in Ufa and then two games will be played in Omsk on Friday and Saturday.

Varlamov seemed to be doing his Don Beaupre impression since every goal seemed to go 5-hole.

The good news is Alzner was named the game MVP for his defensive play.

Yes Alzner played well but if you watched the game Sutter should have got the MVP by a long shot. Great come back win for the Cunucks!

I agree JR, while I only saw sporadic parts of the game (watching online while at work) clearly Sutter was a dominate force in the game, especially on the PK.
