And They’re Off!

The KHL is officially out of the blocks for the new season, with defending champs Metallurg Magnitogorsk downing CSKA Moscow 3-2 in the opener on Monday.  It was a good game, featuring:

  • A Sergei Mozyakin goal (“Wow,” said the commentator, appropriately).
  • Two goals by CSKA’s Dmitry Kugryshev (including the first KHL goal of the season), giving him the very very early league lead in that category.
  • Some nice goaltending at both ends.
  • A fair bit of chippiness, as the teams renewed acquaintances after last year’s seven-game Gagarin Cup final.
  • A look at CSKA’s new uniforms.

Enjoy the highlights, as we get underway for 2016-17!
