For whatever reason, I just don’t feel ready yet to move on from what just happened in Russia, and I think that now isn’t the time to post some slightly frivolous things I have ready to go. And so I’ve gone into my archives and dug up some photos my stepson Denis Brel in St. Petersburg, Russia sent me last year from when he was at a Kontinental Hockey League game involving hometown SKA (in blue) and their visitors for the evening, Vityaz Chekhov.
I think I can speak for most when I say we as North American hockey fans, and indeed hockey fans everywhere, are deeply saddened by the tragic events that have occurred, and I can only imagine what it must be like for someone like Denis, who lives there, who is a big KHL fan, and who follows the league closely.
So in honour of the fans in Russia, and for a glimpse into the KHL, here once again is a good old hockey game in St. Petersburg. (P.S. It ended in a shootout win for SKA).
