Russia holds 4-1 lead after two periods

Team Russia showcased its speed, skill and strength in scoring a pair of goals in the second period and taking a 4-1 lead after 40 minutes.

St. Louis Blues prospect Ty Rattie put Team WHL on the board at 8:15 of the second period, when he skated the puck down the left side of the Team Russia zone, beat a defender and flipped a high backhand shot that got between goalie Andrey Makarov and the post to cut the home team's deficit to 2-1.

However, the momentum didn't last, as Team Russia needed just 28 seconds to push the lead back to two. Kirill Kapustin took the puck down the right side of the Team WHL zone, shrugged aside defenseman Derrick Pouliot, spun and fired a shot on net that goalie Laurent Brossoit stopped, but the puck bounced right to a pinching Kirill Diyakov, who scored off the rebound at 8:43.

That marked the end of Brossoit's night. After shutting out Team Russia last night in Vancouver, he stopped 10 of 13 shots Thursday in 28:43 of action. He was replaced by top 2013 NHL Draft prospect Eric Comrie.

Team Russia up 2-0 after one period

Team Russia accomplished something in the first period of Game 6 of the CHL Subway Super Series it couldn't through 60 minutes of regulation last night and the shootout -- put a puck past Team WHL goalie Laurent Brossoit.

Russia did it twice, with Mikhail Naumenkov and Andrei Sigarev scoring to give Team Russia a 2-0 lead after one period.

If Team Russia wins in regulation, it would win the six-game series.

Kirill Kapustin beat a pair of Team WHL skaters to a puck along the wall in the offensive zone and sent it to Naumenkov at the left point. The defenseman one-timed the puck on net where it bounced past Brossoit at 7:06.

Then with 10 seconds left, Alexander Khokhlachev skated with the puck through the offensive zone, drawing defenders to him. He dropped the puck for Sigarev, who skated into a shot from the high slot that went past Brossoit high.

Gauthier cleared to return to Oceanic lineup next week

Rookie forward Frederik Gauthier of the Rimouski Oceanic is expected to return to the lineup Monday following a seven-game absence with an upper body injury.

"Fred will be 100-percent cleared to play starting next Monday," team vice president Philippe Boucher told NHL.com via email. "It could happen that he plays this weekend, but I would be very surprised."

Gauthier, who reportedly suffered a broken jaw in a Nov. 3 victory against the Quebec Remparts, is an A-rated skater in NHL Central Scouting's preliminary rankings of players to watch in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Prior to his injury, he was opening some eyes this season with 10 goals, 20 points and a plus-12 rating in 18 games for the Oceanic.

Shinkaruk keys Team WHL to shootout win

About a year ago, Medicine Hat forward Hunter Shinkaruk stood at center ice in the Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon waiting for his shootout attempt against Saskatoon Blades goalie Andrey Makarov. He already had beaten Makarov once in regulation that Nov. 22 night, but in the shootout, Makarov won the battle as Saskatoon finished with a 4-3 victory.

Wednesday night, Shinkaruk stood at center ice at Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver waiting for another shootout chance against Makarov.

He clearly learned from his previous miss -- the 2013 NHL Draft prospect beat Makarov to lead Team WHL to a 1-0 shootout victory against Russia in Game 5 of the CHL Subway Super Series.

Super Series scoreless after two periods

In the tight race to represent Canada in goal at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship, Laurent Brossoit certainly made a strong statement in the second period.

The Calgary Flames prospect stopped all 12 shots Russia threw at him to help Team WHL keep Game 5 of the Subway Super Series scoreless through two periods.

Team Russia outshot Team WHL 12-10 in the period. Maxim Shalunov had the best scoring chance of the second, taking a long stretch pass and breaking in alone on Brossoit, but he denied the scoring chance just over six minutes into the period.

Valeri Nichushkin had another great chance in the final 75 seconds of the period, rushing the puck into the Team WHL zone, holding off a Team WHL defender, spinning and firing a backhander in net, but Brossoit calmly directed the shot into the corner.

Super Series game scoreless after one period

The first period of Game 5 of the Subway Super Series saw lots of hits and lots of shots, but no goals, as the teams finished 20 minutes in Vancouver scoreless. Team WHL out-shot Team Russia 13-11.

Each team had back-to-back power plays in the period, but neither was able to cash in. Team WHL was shorthanded all but 17 seconds of a four-minute span early in the first period, as Edmonton Oil Kings teammates Griffin Reinhart (checking from behind) and Travis Ewanyk (interference) were sent to the penalty box.

Team WHL got its chance later in the period, as consecutive penalties on Yevgeni Mozer (tripping) and Yaroslav Dyblenko (interference) were sent off. Despite for all but 23 seconds of a four-minute span, Team WHL was unable to score.

McCoshen discusses college choice, USHL season

Ian McCoshen is in his third season with the Waterloo Black Hawks of the United States Hockey League. The 6-foot-2.5, 207-pound defenseman, regarded as an A skater on NHL Central Scouting's preliminary players to watch list for the 2013 Draft, has produced one goal, four points and a plus-13 rating in eight games this season. McCoshen has agreed to take the time and maintain a blog for NHL.com all season long leading up to the 2013 NHL Draft.

Last week I committed to play college hockey at Boston College following this year. I am really excited about the opportunity to play for the best program in the country. I visited the school during the beginning of one week in mid-October. Boston was really nice; I had never been there before. The city has a rich history, especially in sports…while we drove from the airport to campus, Fenway Park was right there, just on the left side of the highway. Northeastern, Boston University, and Boston College are all within six miles of each other. Boston is really a college town with great atmosphere for college hockey.

On campus, I went to a Tuesday morning literature and composition class with defenseman Mike Matheson. There were only 20 or so students taking the course. It's nice knowing that the classes are small. Once the class was over, I was able to see how small the school actually is. It is a tight-knit campus with beautiful facilities.

NHL set to attend Beyond Sport United

NEW YORK -- On Tuesday, November 13, the National Hockey League will join MLB, MLS, NASCAR, NBA, NFL and WNBA as an official Founding Supporter of Beyond Sport United, a one-day global gathering, exploring opportunities for leagues, teams and their partners to make a positive impact in their community and the local environment. The conference will take place at Yankee Stadium in New York City.

NHL Green has teamed up with Sterling Planet and Bonneville Environmental Foundation to help mitigate the environmental impact of Beyond Sport United 2012.

Sterling Planet, the nation's leading retail provider of environmental assets for corporate, utility and government clients, will donate all environmental assets needed to counterbalance the estimated carbon emissions resulting from electricity consumption during the conference, based on conservative projections of the expected carbon footprint. Accordingly, Sterling Planet will provide the event with 111,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) in the form of Green-e® Energy certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) from U.S. wind projects. The RECs will create a benefit of more than 143,529 pounds of avoided emissions of carbon dioxide.

The League worked with Sterling Planet to balance the carbon emissions associated with arena electricity usage and team air travel throughout the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, as well as the League's estimated 2012 electricity usage at its New York City headquarters. To that end, Sterling Planet supplied 9.8 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of Green-e® Energy certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) and 97 metric tons of verified emission reductions in total.

Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF), a nonprofit provider of energy, carbon and water solutions, will balance the water footprint of the conference. Based on projections of the expected water usage for both Yankee Stadium and attendee hotel rooms, BEF will restore 45,000 gallons of water to critically dewatered ecosystems in Colorado, Montana, Arizona, Utah and/or Oregon through BEF's Water Restoration Certificate® program.

Additionally, the League's 2012 and 2013 water consumption at its New York City headquarters, estimated at six million gallons over two years, will be counterbalanced as part of the NHL Water Restoration Project.

The League launched the NHL Water Restoration Project with BEF in June 2011, focusing sustainability efforts on the issue of freshwater scarcity and its effect on fans, communities and the game of hockey. BEF, on behalf of the NHL, has replenished North American watercourses with over 18 million gallons of water since the project's inception.

Beyond Sport is a global organization that promotes, develops and supports the use of sport to drive positive social change around the world. Beyond Sport United will bring together professionals in the sports industry to discuss the business advantages of working to address difficult community, social and environmental concerns. The event will be a sharing of best practices tackling issues of education, health, sustainability, social inclusion, natural disaster response and more.

In 2011, Beyond Sport celebrated the League as the Sport for Environment winner for a League-wide food recovery program, in cooperation with Rock and Wrap it Up!, which has diverted over 210 tons of waste from landfill and provided local shelters with more than 320,000 meals since the initiative began in 2010. Also in 2011, the NHL was nominated for Beyond Sport's Federation of the Year award. In 2012, the League was again nominated as Sport for Environment, this time for the NHL Water Restoration Project.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
