Speaking of Jan Mursak, he had a fight last week against Pavel Kraskovsky.

Kraskovsky 194 cm vs the 180 of Mursak. Musak held his own fairly well considering the massive size difference.

Pulkkinen is expected to play against the Wings tonight (March 16). Only his second game since being acquired by Arizona.

The KHL uses a larger ice surface than NHL. I couldn't find a definitive size with a quick search.

I saw 3 KHL games this past fall in Bratislava. The rink seemed smaller than the standard olympic size I seen in Geneva. It may have been just the perception of where I was sitting.


On side note, Datsyuk missed the final two games of the series. I presume he is hurt because I seen nothing of a suspension nor did I expect one. SKA advanced to Western conference semi-finals and will play Locomotiv Yaroslavl.

Locomotiv was the team annihilated by the plane crash a few years ago killing former Wings Brad McCrimmon and Ruslan Salei. Staffan Kronwall is the current captain of the team. They beat CSKA (Fedorov's team) to make to it conference final.

Can confirm Datsyuk is injured, although I can't find information on what or how long. He was injured on the hit preceding his major penalty.

Datsyuk missed the first two games of the Western conference finals between SKA St. Petersburg and Yaroslavl Locomotiv.



Calle Jarnkrok was traded to Nashville with Patrick Eaves, and a 3rd round pick for David Legwand. Jarnkrok has 29 points in 71 games this season and had 30 in 81 games the previous season. I think 40-50 points is doable for Jarnkrok, on most nights he looks great for Nashville. He's also been receiving more ice-time since Ribeiro has been demoted to minors.

Career total are 40 goals 46 assists, 86 points in 246 games.

Mattias Janmark who missed the entire season thus far has been ruled for the remainder. He has injury on his knee before the season started and is yet to recover. In his rookie season with Dallas he had 29 points in 73 games.

He was positioned for a bigger role with Nichushkin opting for a return to Russia last summer. Hope he makes a full recovery, he had a very promising future ahead.

Mattias Janmark, Mattias Backman, and a 2nd round pick was sent to Dallas for Erik Cole and conditional pick.

The penalty is for charging. As you can see, Datsyuk glided into the hit.

IMO.

It was a late hit, certainly not a charge.


SKA won 4-2. There was a total of 3 majors/ejections in the game, most were unwarranted.
Discipline committee deemed the hit was clean and waived the game misconduct.

Datsyuk also missed the third game of the Western conference finals with injury.
