  • Philipp Grubauer backstopped Germany to a second shutout in as many days, blanking Austria 6-0 on Friday. They play Latvia on Sunday. In addition, Grubi is now getting some consideration for Team Europe in the World Cup tourney since Frederik Andersen left Denmark’s match with an upper body injury.

  • Braden Holtby has a new housemate/housesitter - Nathan Walker. [CSNMA (video)]
  • Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Evgeni Malkin did some cute dress-like-famous-Russian-cartoon-characters deal during intermission in St. Petersburg.
