Day 4, Game 7: Vasteras IK vs. Seattle Everblades

 

Vasteras made the trek to Seattle after Seattle paid Vasteras a visit in Sweden. This was pretty killer on the IK as they went from Vasteras, Sweden to Stockholm, Sweden to Seattle, Washington, USA all in a matter of 3 days. From Stockholm to Seattle alone that is 4,714 miles. 

 

​Vasteras did not come prepared for this game and it painfully showed. Thor Ljunggren took holding minor 0:15 into the game. It was all downhill from there. Vasteras may have killed off the penalty but it was all for not as Vladimir Malakhov took a hooking minor after the first penalty was killed. Seattle gained a lot of momentum right away and ran away with the game. They may not have scored but they didn't need to as they came to play while Vasteras did not. At 18:20 Todd Fedoruk scored with assists going to Peter Foster and Teppo Numminen. Seattle outshot Vasteras 7-1 in the period. 

 

You would think the second period would bring the Vasteras IK better fortunes right? Yes and no, they scored at 4:23 with the goal going to Yanic Perreault and assists going to Vitali Yachmenev and Zigmund Palffy. That was the only good as they generated on one more shot, which was the bad. Seattle on the other hand wasn't that much better but they did just enough to go into the third period with a lead as Steven Morin scored as 19:42 with assists going to Toby Petersen and Christian Stolzschweiger. Vasteras was out shot by the Everblades 5-2 in the second period.

 

The third period was all Seattle all the time. They outshot Vasteras 7-0. Swish that around in your mouth a little bit; think about it, a whole 20 minutes and Vasteras managed 0 shots. Steven Morin scored on the first shot of the period with assists going to Joey Kendrick and Robbie Zimmers. Vitali Yachmenev recorded a roughing minor as he took out his frustrations on Teppo Numminen of the Seattle Everblades. I think this is an amazing fact as there has not been one power play goal in the preseason as again from this game no one scored on the PP. Through 7 games we have 0 PP goals. At 13:46 Toby Petersen put this baby to bed with a goal with the only assist going to Danny Tremblay. 

 

First star went to Steven Morin for his 2 goal effort, more interestingly he had only 2 shots in the game. Toby Petersen received second star honours for finishing with 2 points a goal and assist as well as +2 and winning 5 face-offs. Third star went to Todd Fedoruk for finishing with 1 goal and a +2. Matthew Pogge allowed 4 goals on 17 shots for a save percentage of 0.765. Another interesting stat is the winning goalie finished with a lower save percentage than the losing goalie who also got pulled. Tyler Vassell allowed 1 goal on 3 shots for a save percentage of 0.667. Joseph Baker entered the game after the 4th goal was scored and saved the only two shots he faced.

Day 4, Game 8: Helsinki Frostbite vs Calgary Wranglers

 

The Frostbite made a long trip from Finland to Calgary, Alberta, Canada. This trip consisted of 4,418 miles and a 9 hour time difference. When they left Helsinki at 5 PM Helsinki time they would get to Calgary around 6-7 AM Calgary time. 

 

The game started off with a bang as center Reg Vaillancourt took a double minor for roughing up Jay Bris. This stagnant power play to start off with the creation of the VHL has now reached 0 for 19. Helsinki has now gone 0 for 2. They gained energy from the PK though as they killed it and as Reg Vaillancourt stepped out of the sin bin he set up a goal 18 seconds later. Agent Cody Banks scored with assists going to Brad Janssen and Reg Vaillancourt. Calgary also outshot the Frostbite 9-5 in the period. 

 

The teams barely showed any signs of life in the second period though as only 8 shots came of it. Calgary took another penalty as Shawn Crowley received a holding minor. Again though, Calgary's PK came up big stopping Helsinki from scoring and getting momentum from it. Brett Slobodzian scored with assists going to Aki Berg and Adam Hall. Calgary had 5 shots and Helsinki only 3.

 

In the third period Helsinki woke up and really put the home team on the ropes as Jay Bris scored 0:18 into the period. Assists went to Jeff Downey and Andrew Remeikis. The home was now being pressured as the safe 2 goal lead was now only a 1 goal lead. The Frostbite tied it up less than 3 minutes later with a goal from Blair Betts from Oscar Keller and Alexei Fedorov. The Frostbite kept up the pressure hitting the Wranglers as soon as they touched the puck but at 15:40 Brett Slobodzian broke out of the zone and scored at 15:47 to put the Wranglers up for good. He scored his seconds goal of the game with assists going to Lucas Smith and Scott Boulet. 

 

The crowd of 15,051 was sent home happy as the home team won in exciting fashion. First star went to non-other than Brett Slobodzian. Second and third went to Jay Bris and Cody Banks respectively. Sam Lafluer stopped 13 of 16 shots and his counterpart Drew Barclay stopped 14 of 16. Helsinki finished 0 for 2 on the PP while Calgary didn't receive one at all but the PK went 2 for 2.
