CHL Subway Super Series
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.

Back with more after the second period.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
