Series totals: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

Andrei Vasilevski put on a show Monday night in Blainville-Boisbriand, stopping 31 shots to lead Russia to a win in the opening game of the 2012 Canada-Russia Subway Super Series. The Q has now lost five straight games to the Russians. Vasilevski, who was wearing a Lightning mask, was named Player of the Game for Russia. He made routine saves, difficult saves, and spectacular saves. The save of the game was Vasilevski doing the splits to stop a QMJHL shot from his left. He was beaten on the power play on a shot that went top corner, then late in the game Jean-Sebastien Dea lost control of the puck on a partial breakaway and the disc snuck through Vasilevski's legs. Vasilevski was playing the deke.

Defenseman Nikita Nesterov played a significant amount of minutes for Russia and was out in all situations, including quarterbacking the power play and playing on a 5-on-3 penalty kill. He made good decisions and was praised for his "relentlessness." Lightning coach Guy Boucher will be happy about the "relentless" tag as it is one of his buzzwords.

Cedric Paquette didn't see a lot of ice time on his home rink, but he was perhaps the most physical QMJHL player, landing at least two big hits. One led to a scoring chance on Vasilevski, but the big Russian shut the door. Paquette will not play in Wednesday's Game 2. Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev is expected to suit up for Russia in Game 2, however.
