Mikhail Grabovski robbed with potential save of the year, scores pretty goal anyway

Mikhail Grabovski (or as he's called in the KHL, Mikhail Grabovsky), gets absolutely robbed Tomas Popperle in a game between Grabovski's CSKA Moscow (Red Army) and Lev Prague.

He redeems himself later in the game with a nice goal off a feed from Pavel Datsyuk. Grabo also gets stopped on a penalty shot, but he still had a goal and his team won. It has to be such a culture shock for him to be on a winning team.

Just watch.

Every year we project how many points each of the players will score using a couple of different statistical methods, and why should a potential lockout season be any different?

If you're just tuning in, we explained our methodology in more detail in our first piece, which covered the top-six forwards.  This time we'll cover the defensemen and then close up in a third and final piece that features the remaining, secondary forwards.

 After a lockout wiped out the 2004/2005 season the NHL had to come up with a plan on how to decide the draft order for the "Sidney Sweepstakes."

Marlies Schedules and 3-in-3 Sets

Five games into the 2012-13 season, and the Toronto Marlies have completed their first three-games-in-three nights sets. They line up six times over the season in 3-in-3 sets, a fairly low number when considering the Providence Bruins play an AHL high 17 sets, while their provincial rivals, Hamilton Bulldogs, in a league low, four - all after March 1.

Below is a look at the Marlies schedule, with the focus on 3-in-3 sets, and some distance traveled. Distances and schedules are complicated by long distance bus travel instead of late night charters, taking it's toll over the course of a season. Proper conditioning can make a difference late in games, and game sets, especially on the road.
