There was an insane amount of KHL hockey today. Like I’ve been editing for hours and hours. If anyone says there’s "no hockey" I’m going to have to punch them with my exhausted and carpal tunnel syndrome-stricken hands.
It’s really weird watching Pekka Rinne play like crap, but here’s Pekka Rinne playing like crap. Evander Kane got his first KHL goal though so…yayyy Minsk.
Nail Yakupov gets a nice assist but Varlamov and Hagman down Neftekhimik.
Ovechkin didn’t play because he was sick, but Nicklas Backstrom and company beat Dinamo Riga.
Ilya Kovalchuk has to be considered the best player in the KHL right now. No question.
Vityaz storms back from a 3-0 deficit to beat Kuznetsov and Traktor 4-3 in the shootout.
And all that goodness wrapped into one, including a pretty crazy stat about Zdeno Chara. He is NOT having a good time in the KHL.
