Team OHL, Russia play scoreless first period

Russia, playing its third game in four days, looked a step slow in the first period facing Team OHL in Game 3 of the Subway Super Series at Guelph, Ontario.

One starter looked fresh, however: goalie Igor Ustinski, a 2013 NHL Draft prospect. Ustinski stopped everything Team OHL threw at the Russian net and the game remained scoreless after one period.

Each team had a chance to get on the board on a power-play chance, but Ustinski and Team OHL goalie Malcolm Subban, a Boston Bruins prospect, combined to keep the nets well-guarded.

Team OHL outshot Russia, 9-4.

Alexander Khokhlachev, another Bruins prospect, had Russia's best chance, with about four minutes left, when he took a nice cross-ice pass from Kirill Kapustin and had two shots down low, but Subban denied him both times.

Moments later, Russia captain Nail Yakupov was called for kneeing Sean Monahan, but Team OHL couldn't take advantage of their extra-man opportunity, with Brett Ritchie -- who took Team OHL's penalty 5:43 into the game -- having the best chance, but a bouncing puck got past him.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
