Russia 8 – Atlantic 2

NAMESTNIKOV SCORES FOUR IN RUSSIAN ROUT

CAMPBELL RIVER, BC – It was a game to remember for Vladislav Namestnikov, and capped off a day to remember for Campbell River hockey fans.

Namestnikov scored four goals to lead Russia to an 8-2 win over Atlantic at the Strathcona Gardens, pushing the Russians back to the .500 mark after Monday night’s heartbreaking last-second loss to Pacific.

Roman Berdnikov, Artur Amirov, Aleksander Gogolev and Evgeny Kuznetsov also scored for the Russians, who blew open a tight 4-2 game with a four-spot of goals in the final 20 minutes. Alex Noel and Sean Couturier scored the goals for Atlantic, who dropped to 0-2.

It was another standing-room-only crowd at Strathcona Gardens, who saw Quebec score seven times in the third period to steal a 10-6 win from Slovakia in the early game. Both games had close to 1,000 fans crammed in to watch the stars of tomorrow.

The Russians are back on the ice for the early game in Port Alberni on Sunday, taking on Ontario at the Alberni Valley Multiplex (2 p.m. PST). Atlantic will travel to Duncan to face-off with Germany (7 p.m. PST).
