Some of the best under-20 players from Russia faced off against the best from the QMJHL, OHL, and the WHL, with Russia playing each of these groups twice, splitting each mini-series. Of the six games played, four of them went to overtime - a record for the tournament. Related: 2019 CIBC Canada Russia Series Storylines to Follow To determine the series winner, the WHL and Team Russia had to have a second shootout in the final game - that's right.

Flames History

Friday night gave us some outstanding goaltending efforts across the National Hockey League. We have our first 10-game winner of the season and a team desperate for a victory got a huge performance out of their netminder. Later tonight, a youngster will make his NHL debut. Plus, Nov. 16 has seen a lot of goaltending history and we will look at some of the bigger moments. Price the First to Hang 10 The Washington Capitals were the hottest team in the NHL heading into Friday night. They walked into the Capital One Arena on a 13-game point streak, but the Montreal Canadiens were more than happy to put an end to it. Tomas Tartar had a huge night with a goal and three assists in the Canadiens 5-2 victory. Goaltender Carey Price made 26 saves to pick up his 10th victory of the season, becoming the first goaltender in the league to hit double digits in wins. This is not a feat Price is unfamiliar with as this is the third time, in his career, he has been the first goaltender...

Long Read

The Edmonton Oilers' start to 2019-20 has been the most intriguing difference when looking ahead to the Battle of Alberta this season with the first matchup on Dec. 27. Edmonton went 7-1-0 to start the season, and 20 games in, currently sit first in the Pacific Division with 26 points. At one point, they held the top spot in the Western Conference, a position the Calgary Flames held tight when the 2018-19 regular season came to a close. But is this the same Flames team that won the West a season ago? Or is this the team that was buried by the Colorado Avalanche in the first round of the 2019 Playoffs? Assessing the Flames group two months into this season, it seems the more things change, the more they stay the same. Gripping the Stick Too Tight We've hit the quarter mark of the 2019-20 NHL season and many Flames fans are still sorting through the various texts and tweets from friends and family north of YYC in Edmonton.
